Default Need your opinion

I am currently considering buying a brand new computer ( Seeing as my current one, has rescently (2-3 days ago), burned my sound-card, and is 6 years old, and was thinking I might be able to get a good opinion from you guys in this forum

I am currently considering buying a:

Intel P4 3.2Ghz/2MB Cache
1GB DDR2 (2x512MB) 533 Mhz PC4200
GeForce 7800GTX 256MB Ram DDR3
Antec Sonata 450 Watt (100% low noise)(Cabinet)
Creative SB Audigy player 2 ZS 7.1
Asus P5WD2 Premium Motherboard
Primetech 100% pure copper, CPUCooler(Soundless)
200GB Seriel-ATA Harddisk (7200RPM / 8MB cache)
DVD+/-RW 16x16x speed dual layer
Integrated 7.1 channel sound.
Integrated gigabit 10/100/1000 networkcard

for a total of 14637 Dkr (or 2.345,22 $)

Do you think this is a fair price for this setup, or should I look other places for cheaper manufacturers in Denmark?

Thanks for your input guys

well i think you would be better off if you told us the specific uses for your computer because you may be paying more than you need to. im guessing by the fact there is a 7800gtx in there you are going to be gaming in which case i would suggest not getting a p4 sytem and getting an athlon64 system. sorry i can't really help with the prices though.
