looks good, but question, do you have a 64bit Operating System to recognize all 4gb's of RAM, also consider lookng at the OCZ Reaper 4gb Kit because its got great specs for ddr2 800 RAM

Looks like a good build to me the only thing I might change would be the ram to crucial or corsair, but either way your build looks nice.

not too bad, if you game go with the e8400. That's all ill say, you might wanna get an after market cooler to overclock, but its fine if you don't
