    Yes that system seems pretty good nothing wrong with it. Few things I would change but this is just Personal preference. the Ram & the Powersupply I would go with OCZ as the manufacture just because I use them all the time in my system and in clients systems and have yet to have a problem with that company. Also I think the warrenty period is longer for the OCZ powersupply its either 3 or 5 years cant remember.

    I also personally like Seagate for the harddrives & Asus for the Motherboard But once again thats just what I like and have used in systems I have built. But what you have picked is just as good.

    One thing you Might want to do is wait for ATI to bring out their DX10 video card (which should be soon) I have heard its faster then the 8800 and even if its not I can see the price for the 8800 going down now that it will have some competition in the DX10 field.

    Ciao
