hmm wait for the price drop on the E4300 and overclock it or you could stay with the E6300 (your choice)

Also i may suggest, wait untill the lower end DX10 cards come out, the 8600Ultra should fit right into your budget

You'll need Vista for DX10, but it's gonna be a while (maybe a year) before the games start requiring it exclusively , so there's no point in waiting for the 8600 (if that's what it's gonna be called). The 7950GT is perfect.

There's nothing I would change in that build, and I've been proposing a lot of "budget" builds lately. Congratulations to you for a very good selection of parts.

C2Ds are the best for gaming, and everything else right now.
