Don't mean to burst your bubble but thats kinda rubbish.

Case seriously lacks any cooling ability
Motherboard is an old chipset and AM2 which is near obsolete
8600gts was a rubbish card when it came out if your going to be gaming otherwise its great for media centres
AMD really aren't the best way to go
Nice ram
Seagates latest series is the 7200.11 that hdd is a bit old fashioned
When you got windows go for the MCE edition and OEM pack

Not bad for the price, but you could have done much better... I guess you'll be okay on XP though.
