You forgot to tell us the (arguably) most important part of a gaming rig: the video card!

And that motherboard already has ethernet built in, so you wouldn't need to buy an ethernet card (unless you meant a wireless adaptor card).

the psu that comes with that raidmax case is generic crap it wont handle it at least not in a stable manner i suggest youll change to antec lifestyle sonata ii that comes with an antec smartpower 450w psu. a quality psu (newegg have it for 79.99$ after rebate) , do you really need another network card? the mobo have one integrated but if you really need another there are bit more expensive mobos that have 2 net cards might wanna consider gettin one , the evga mobo seem to have nice reviews but thats like their first motherboard ever i wouldnt get a mobo from a company that dont have alot of expirence in the field but thats just my opinion , what hard drive & cd-rw exactly are they? , might wanna consider getting a dvd burner they cost just a tiny bit more.. the nec 3550 costs 37-39$, yeah its still good same goes for prices but i suggest youll buy from a more known & reliable store www.newegg.com / www.zipzoomfly.com / www.mwave.com

785 is a pretty good price for that computer. I could be better though.
