    No GPU.

    Also, why waste $$ on a 6GB SATA drive if you only want 7200 RPM? Buy 3GB SATA if it is cheaper; the performance will be identical since the limitation here is the pickup rate of data from the platter(s) and not the interface speed.

    Nice video card.

    ------------------------------------

    All of that looks compatible, you're just going to have a good time fitting in that video card. :D

    Any specific questions?

    Not really. About 95% of what I know about computer hardware I taught myself all within the last 16 months. So I don't know if I'm missing something or over looking something. Any and all recommendations, tips, and thoughts are welcomed.
    I love high graphic games. I want to use this computer for: Crysis w/ texture packs, Fallout 3, Oblivion, Battlefield 3, Stalker w/ packs, Metro 2033.
    I already have all these games (except BF3). Just saving them to play on this next computer.

    You might want to upgrade that processor to an i7, but that's the only thing I would suggest altering.

    The rest looks good.
