Default Building PC for first time - I have Compiled some Specs - Help/Recommendations needed

So far after reading reviews and recommendations...
these are specs of the computer I have come up with.

After reading these please give me an idea of how powerfull the computer will turn out to be and overall if it will be a good computer.

Also recommendations are welcome =)


Asus P5Q Pro LGA 775 P45 Intel Motherboard

Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 2.53 Ghz [O.C around 3.2 Ghz]

4GB [2 x 2GB] DDR2 SDRAM 1066 [PC2 8500] Dual Channel Wintec AMPX

Video/Graphics Card
EVGA 512MB 9800GTX [G92] GeForce SLI Support + 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express

SeaGate Barracuda 7200 RPM 250GB 3.0 GB/s 16MB Cache

Computer Case/Tower
ATX 585 Watt Power Supple - Black Case [Blue LED]

Optical Disc Drive
DVD/CD Rom Drive DVD 18X + CD 48X SATA

Btw I can build this PC for approximately 650 Dollars.
My Budget is 700 Dollars for a PC.
Also: I want to use it for gaming mostly [Will run this high end games?]
If not what should I change in the setup to allow for high end games to run?

You already posted this in the High Performance thread.

Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."
