looking at those specs, your building a gaming pc?

For gaming I think that it should be a recommended 1gb of RAM, so probably go with 2x512mb OCZ Ram, pc3200
Other than that looks sweet!
Oh wait, maybe another 120gb HDD...

meh, the x800xl and 6800gt are both great cards.

i just bought my vanilla 6800 because it supports pixel shader 3.0, and i need that for the higher quality HDR in day of defeat and hl2

I like the build. Definetly go with more HD space and RAM thought if you can afford it and i second the 6800gt recommendation.
