looks good.... except for the 4gb of RAM.. 2gb is enough unless you do CAD or something

this is a better PSU with the same 12v Amperage:

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX ATX12V V2.2 550W Power Supply 90 - 264 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail


also why 2 topics... please bump your first topic... instead of a new one

you forgot an OS if your going with vista then 4gb is worthwhile if sticking with xp then its utterly pointless.

You should buy a better gfxcard for better performance in games e.g. 8800gts (320)

All I do is game on my computers. Do you think that the video card I have will hiccup on games?

this is cheaper and better RAM if you don't mind a rebate:

Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

also if you just play Everquest 2 then a 7900gs is more than enough

It would be a good choice....if they actually made them anymore. The 7900GS's are gone and if all you play is Everquest 2 and thats all your going to play then just get an X1950PRO or even an 8600GTS....however I suggest the X1950PRO.

Since you are not an overlocker, then go with the X1950PRO, as it beats the 7900GS.
