i hope you havent used that pro cd key before.

first mobo sucks
get a DFI nF4 ultra-D o MSI K8N NEO4-F
the 6600GT will nost last you 3 years
it really depends on how high you want to set the resolution etc.
but nothign will last you 3 year son high settings lol
the psu is ok
the cpu is good
i would recommend 512x2 ram but 1GB stick is ok to but you wont be running in dual channel.
you might wan tto look into getting a 6800GT

change the mobo to something else. Gigabyte, MSI, DFI
PSU is alright
It really depends on what you do, the 6600gt may or may not last for three years.
CPU is good.
buy 512*2 dual channel, I think it'll run faster. Corsair, Kingmax, G.Skill, or Geil.

SATA drive seagate or Western Digital 120GB should do it
Thermaltake Shark
OCZ 700W GameXStream
Asus M2N32 SLI
AM2 X2 5600
Corsair XMS 2x1GB
Western Digital Raptor 150 GB
2xBFG 7950GT

Whoa, TT products are not good when it comes to Power supplies. They are made quite cheaply and they draw cutomers to buy them by looks and cool colors.

trust me my other forum woulda shot you for wanting to buy a TT PSU.

for power supplies the following brands are good.
Enermax, antec, forton source, OCZ and PC power and Cooling.
