That's pretty close to mine... i have two gigs cause i heard the x2 will be shorted unless you do. Make sure that you spend the measily 30 dollars or w/e to get low latancy ram; it REALLY speeds up your system.

also, for the graphic card i might recommend the leadtek 6800gt; its under 300 and is a great oc'er, my friend has one at 450/1150 i think!! Thats about what a 7800gt does and it stays well under 70 degrees too!!

if your building an SLI system, make sure to get a complient psu, gc, and mobo (i see you have an sli mobo).

Personal preference here: buy a sound card, whether the x-fi or audigy 2 zs, it helps with games a LOT.

It all looks like a great set-up though

id change the mobo to a DFI Lanparty NF4 Ultra D and i would get the X23800 and OC it cos it does well even on stock. also i wouldn't worry about the amout of grx card mem more how good the grfx card is as a whole for instance a 128mb 6600GT PWNZ the 256mb 6600
