Default WHat do you think about this system

I have finally decided to build a new system:

My current one is 1.8Ghz P4, 512mb Rambus, 64mb Gforce 3

Well i have never built comp before and i wondered if this potential new comp might have some issues:

3. eVGA 256-P2-N516 Geforce 7800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Cardhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130256
4. Intel Pentium 4 650 Prescott 800MHz FSB 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 EM64T 3.4Ghz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116196
5. ASUS P5LD2 Deluxe Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945P ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131539
6. pqi TURBO 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141211
7. Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Sound Cardhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102178
8. ZALMAN CNPS7700-CU 120mm 2 Ball Cooling Fan & Copper Heatsinkhttp://www.newegg.com/product/Produc...82E16835118115

Switch to AMD

Get a good PSU (Antec Truepower 550w)

Yea, I think you should go with an AMD processor since it looks like you will be doing some serious gaming with that 7800GT.

If your an Intel fanboy, at least go with their new 9xx series CPU's.

Otherwise, I agree with the others.
