Only thing i c wrong is the ram... in my opinion i would just get two cheap 512 instead of ocz..... you wont notice that much of a diffence, unless you dont mind spending $30 for a small increase..

Everything seems fine (mayb u could get a better graphics card..

I suggest you upgrade to 2gb in the future....
If your thinking about SLI... i wouldnt recomend it.

2x80gb is good if he plans to RAID them. i would suggest dual core even though you say there is no need for it.

Thanks for the replys. I probably won't SLI. And I'll look into the dual core a little more.
