Should be a great system. I would go with an AMD64 processor though for gaming. Get the AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Clawhammer core with the Asus K8V SE Deluxe mobo.

Thats fine, Intel isn't really that bad, its just not what I prefer. Good luck building.

i'd say buy a northwood instead of a prescott, that's wat ppl have been telling me. and buy a 160GB since it's like a $10 difference anyways. and the 600W PSU, as long as your not gonna fill up your case w/ cathodes and fans and ****, go easy w/ it, since that radiates some heat too.
