Default Computer parts

Hey all I want to buy these parts and they are on order, wondering if anyone had any problems with them and if they are good parts?

Core 2 Duo E6300 1.86ghz - Skt775 Fsb1066 2mb Cache Boxed In
ASUS P5B Pentium 4/Celeron/Pentium D/PentiumEE/65nm dual-core/Core2Duo/Core2EE

2 x Crucial 1GB 240 Pin DIMM Unbuffered DDR2 PC4200

1 x Asus Nvidia 7300GS 256MB PCI-E

1 x Hitachi Deskstar 7K80 80GB 7200RPM SATA/150 8MB Cache -

What you think? will i have any problems with them?

I heard that the Asus Nvidia 7300GS 256MB PCI-E is not as good as most cards, but as long as it plays dark messiah i'm ok right? as I'm trying at the moment to play it on a nvidia 5200, this card would be better right but not the best?

bad move with the 7300... that series sucks in general... change it if you can to at least a 7600 or even a 6800GS/GT. Your 5200 is about the same as the 7300...

but other than that, your parts look good.

looks better, but I would think about a card a little more up to date for more future use... (I am a gamer hence why I say that) maybe the 7600GT or 7900GS. The higher memory is sometimes not the thing to look for. (512MB vs, 256MB)

Would it not be better to wait for when the G8's come out so I can buy a more up to date one cheaper?
