You have a really nice system, similar setup to mine except I am running AMD.

The only thing I would do is improve the graohics card. I would look at a Radeon 9600XT or a Geforce FX 5700 Ultra. Anything above that is even better.

Nvidia is supposed to be coming out with a budget 6800 chipset card which will have performance similar to the Geforce FX 5900. That might be a good cheap card but prices are unknown yet.

Computer cases have a tendancy to get rather warm inside and after awhile the acrylic dries out and you start getting little cracks in it. They look great but Im wondering about long term durability. If you dod decide to go with a acrylic case make sure it has enough drive mounting trays for your stuff. I saw a flourecent green Flex ATX sized acrylic case that aroused my curiosity but I hvaent sprung on it yet. Just make sure to have plenty of ventilation.

You dide not mention the sound system. Is it 3D? does it do 3D positional audio? does it support EAX extensions? If your happy with it then no problem.

get a radeon 9600xt 128 or 9800pro 128 youll poo your pants and they are the most cost effective . my computer is way crappier than yours and when i went from a radeon 9200 to a 9800pro the preformance for gaming became a billion times better. if i had a half decent cpu id be laughing, danm celerons.

make it a ricer, get a big Honda sticker to put on the side, but an annoying fart can on the cpu fan, a spoiler on the top, and some neon lights.. jk.... video card, i suggest an nVidia but not an mx, they're cheap both ways, price and quality, they're like the celeron of intel or the duron of AMD... or like having a practice grenade in a war.... but yeah, i say get an nVidia thats not an mx...

I think the Radeon is better, but the GeForce may be less expensive. Either way, you don't really need anything too fancy.
