Every thing looks great. But if you have the money get a 3800+ and some good old Corsair XMS memory like amoreeblabla said.

I would suggest changing the motherboard, find one that supports Athlon 64 dual core processors, so then, when you +3500 gets a bit slow, you can upgrade to a +4800, big improvement, whithout having to buy a whole new board, and I would suggest getting an sli board, you don't have to stick 2 cards in it, just same tiem when you upgrade the cpu, you would probally want to buy a second graphics card, and run em in sli. And I agree, GET CORSAIR XMS SERIES RAM! haha, it is much faster then what you got right now. But your on the right track, just get a different motherboard, what I described would allow for much better upgradeability.

Yes,i did get a new GPU,but ive been saving up for a HUGE upgrade to pci-e and amd 64. I want something that will just dominate everything I throw at it. Im power hungry :)
