You might want to consider core 2 duo, but other then that it looks good. And you are going to need a power supply.

Get a X1950XT for 270$ instead of the 7950GT. Unless you specifically want to play games in ridiculous resolutions (which the 7950GT can't do for newer games anyway), you will have a superior card in the X1950XT, even if it has 256mb less of gddr. Its a bit cheaper too.

I have this card, I can tell you its a VERY good buy.

Well, cases that come with powersupply are usually shit.

I suggest looking into another PSU.

But overall. The computer is looking good.

Looking good, two suggestions The Duel core Processor is a Must have when build a new system. And Yes a PSU. General rule of thumb case PSU are used for backup only.

Ultra PSUs aren't that bad really. It's not something I'd buy seperately, granted, but that's most because I'm a Tagan whore. :p

Thanks a lot you guys! I think I'll stick with the PSU, that's included, I'm chea p and I don't think it's a bad PSU. I am not a fan of Intel so I'll stick with the AMD. CNET tested them and AMD came out on top. I don't know what to do about the video card, I think I want that one so I can SLI in the future when I get money for another card, plus the reviews are good for it. I might be getting a widscreen LCD so the resolution might be a little weird. Thanks for the comments.

It would be nice if you told us the PSU.

And the benchmarks that CNET preformed are obsoloete becuase they were using the Pentium D processor line. The Intel Core 2 Duo out performs it's AMD counter parts by a decent bit. But the all of the AMD 64's are at insanely low prices at the moment, making them a great deal.
