System looks god, but I just want to clear some things up:

1. Why are you going from an already bought 480W PSU, to a $39 420W PSU??

2. I know your hard drive isn't the fastest in the world with only a 2Mb cache, but you might want to consider getting another one exactly like it, and put them in a RAID function as your motherboard is capable of it? It would be cheaper and you get an additional 40Gb compared to that 80Gb Seagate.

3. Your buying another 6600GT without buying an SLi capable motherboard? Surely keeping your very good overclocked 6600GT would be way more beneficial??

4. Why don't you just spend that little bit more (i.e. the savings from not buying a less powerful PSU) on your motherboard to get an SLi and put the new 6600GT in there to almost double your performance in the graphics section?

5. All the items you put down in your list come to $611.49 without shipping and tax, so you may need to ammend some stuff in there.

Hope all that helps!

i didnt mean to put the bump there lol i was thinking i was in the forsale section on one of my other posts lol sorry .ok 6600gt in sli (the decived) would not do anything, maybe it would get me a high 3dmark score but it would not get more than a 10fps difference in gaming so why waste 160 on another 6600gt and the extra cost on a sli capable motherboard, and my powersupply i have now sucks its 480 watt yes but its generic and is only 16 amps to the 12volt rail, so the one i included in the link its a bit more amps and a reliable name brand,as i have heard powersupplys can burn up motherboards and hardware. my processor now compares to a 3.3ghz pentium 4. an amd athlon 64 venice socket 939 overclocked to 2.7ghz in reviews ive read is not far behind a fx 57 (sandra2005) but the 3000 venice is lacking the large cache. and the total of all this stuff maybe did come out to 611$ but im getting the memory for 70$ from my brother not 123$ on newegg. and i maybe could get a used processor on ebay for 20 bucks cheaper. so i could just forget that one from newegg for 146$
