looks good, make sure you have a micro case though.......

also, if you can, try this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103539

It has a San Diego core, and is faster

Ok ill take your word on that processor,But the video card will not bottleneck will it? And the big question,my main goal is to play Battlefield 2 flawlessy,will this achieve that? And of course how long do you think this rig will be awesome?

the 7800 wont bottleneck, and it will play BF2 very well........and even with the CPU you posted, it should last you for a while

go with this, better than the biostar you have up there. lemme find a link for a video card.

http://www.chiefvalue.com/app/productdetails.asp?submit=&item=14-122-228R&ATT=Video%20Cards&CMP=OTC-pr1c3watch

its 10 bucks cheaper. newegg really dosent have the best prices, i dont know why people still use them. www.zipzoomfly.com has better prices with free second day shipping on all items. cheifvalue has better prices too. eVga also sucks, Leadtek has better cooling.

It's $10 cheaper because its refurbished. Never, ever get a refurbished video card if you can spare the cash. Take a worse card before you take a refurbished one in my opinion.
