looks pretty decent but if you are going to be gaming you will be needing a half decent graphics card. the integrated 6100 may play some games on low settings but in general will not be very enjoyable. on the other hand if this is just a desktop PC then you will be fine with the graphics included with the motherboard. these days people are tending towards 2gb of ram if you have a high enough budget to double you memory. the chipset cooler probably won't be necessary but it is up to you. personally i would buy a new power supply to replace the one included with the case (OCZ Power/Modstream, Antex True/Smart Power).

Do not use that power supply that comes with the case you I suggest this more reliable brand:

For the graphic card, I'm not sure.....what is your budget?

budget for graphics card is $200-300 cdn.
was thinking of "XFX GeForce 7600 GT XXX 590MHZ 256MB 128BIT 1.6GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I TV Out Video Card"
will that work great for games?
if not . plz recommend.
