That’s good. But be warned; you do need firewall and anti-virus software installed before you EVER manually access the internet. Because as soon as you do, the spy ware and add bulls*** will ware down your system permanently! Sometimes causing you to have to install the system all over again. (I’m sure you probably already know this, but just making sure…)

Cool system. I don't really see anything you should change,. If I gave one suggestion, I would suggest getting a little bit less of a sound card, and upping your gfx card choice to the X800 Pro or XT. But, the system you currently got is great. Good luck building your first system. It will be an experience you will always remember.

I would downgrade the sound card and definetly go for the x800, it will be worth it
