Default Any ideas?

Hi guys,

I've decided at long last to ditch my dusty old laptop and get myself a proper desktop computer. Looking at some gaming packages i've found a system which looks fairly suitable for what I want, here are the specs

ATi X1950
IntelĀ® CoreĀ® 2 Duo 6300
1 X X1950XT
1024 DDR 2 667 MHz Memory
Coolermaster Extreme 600W Power Supply Upgrade
Asus P5B-VM Motherboard Upgrade

I'll probably go for 2 gig or ram and a 200 gig or so hard drive.

How's this look to you people? Anything you'd change or add? I'm also looking for a good soundcard to do some audio capturing on, any ideas for that?

Well that's about it, thanks for any help you can give me, and sorry if this belongs in the standard pc section!

Also get at least Budget DDR2-800 RAM for overclocking and it will go farther in the future. It's really not that much more.

Antec 900 Case
EVGA 750i FTW Mobo
4x1GB of G.skill DDR2-800
