Not a bad build, I would've gotten one stick of RAM for upgradability, but otherwise, it's nice. Which monitor is that, 15" LCD? No no, way too small. You want at least 17"

as far as gaming-
yes, you could play CS source and stuff like that, no hardcore games, but thats a light gaming machine. since your graphics is pci-e you can always upgrade to a better graphics card later on.
