Looks good above but i personnaly would go with a dual core processor and the ocz modstream psu. The psu has better cable managment and thus your system will cool better.


The opterons overclock really well:

Yea, I was looking at the 4400+ cause I might be buying this weekend and said that it was 100 dollars off with the eVGA 7800GTX and a bunch of other video cards, and I said "screw the GT I am going for the GTX." It's only 30 dollars more then the GT I was going to get.
