Default Compatibility/Recommendations?

I'm going to be upgrading my computer to keep up with some of the newer games.

CPU
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz 2 x 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-EG43M-S2H LGA 775 Intel G43 HDMI Micro ATX
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EG43M-S2H LGA 775 Intel G43 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

RAM
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

I currently have these in my computer:

-Antec 430W ATX 12v
-8800 GTS PCIe x16

Could I get some feedback if these all work? Or some recommendations?

Antec 430W i assume is the earthwatts, which is an excellent psu and you should need a new one.

Unless you have a micro atx case I recommend changing the motherboard to a Biostar TP45HP.
