Default Help with a New Gaming Desktop

Hey all.

I've been gaming on laptops for years, and I'm finally just sick of them. So I ave $2,000 (NZ) to spend on a new desktop. I came up with this...

Pentium Dual Core E5300 2.6GHz
Gigabyte G-Power Lite Cooler
Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L
8GB A-Data 800MHz DDR-2 Ram (4x 2GB - For Dual Channel)
500GB Western Digital SATA-2 7200rpm
Leadtek/PNY nVidia Quadro FX570 256MB DDR2
Dual Silverstone 120mm Blue LED Cooling Fan


And i'm not to flash with computers, and the speed it'll run, but basically I'm wanting this computer to last a few years, and play most of the big games, and ones to come out (Thinking of CoD6 and Diablo 3)

Or if anyone can come up with a better build (2,000NZ is around.. 1000US)

Edit:

I found something I think I like a bit better.

Core 2 Q8200 Quad Core 2.33GHz
Gigabyte G-Power Pro Cooler
Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L
8GB Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X4096 800MHz DDR-2 Ram (4x 2GB - For Dual Channel)
9in1 Flash Card Reader
500GB Western Digital SATA-2 7200rpm
Leadtek/PNY nVidia Quadro FX570 256MB DDR2
Coolermaster Elite 341 Mini Tower
Coolermaster 300Watt Power Supply
Dual Silverstone 120mm Blue LED Cooling Fan
120mm Fan Filter
No Monitor
Genius KB200 Keyboard
Onboard Hi-Definition Audio

I wouldn't get a workstation graphics card, unless that's your number one priority. I would get a Radeon 4850/4870 for the price you would get the FX570 for.

First Thing first Are you going to overcloak the cpu
if your not then you won't need a custom cooler
The cooler should be good to hold it at a good temp
Second thing
Your mother board can support good Audio so you shouldn't need a card for that
