critique my build
 
I am making this system...

Motherboard: Newegg.com - Intel BOXDP35DPM LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

GPU:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100189L Radeon X1900GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO Video Card - Retail

PSU:
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP550-2-S ATX12V v2.01 550W Power Supply 115/230 V CSA, UL, TUV, FCC - Retail

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 Conroe 1.86GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail

RAM:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Sound:
Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail

I plan on upgrading to a high end yorkfield when they come out in 2008, so I'm just getting the e6320 to tide me over until then. Other than that, I'm not too sure if that is a good motherboard choice or not, or also if it is worth it to wait for ddr3 memory.

Get a Gigabite dsk mobo, and mayve a 8800gts? not sure if u really need a sound card to be honest, so you could get the antec 900 case, best cheap cooling case i know of, its fantastic

ill check out the motherboards, and I would like to have a soundcard. I think they work a lot nicer than onboards. 8800gts is too expensive for my blood, im not really concerned with playing new games on the highest settings. I just want to play new games.

yah i know its cheap for what i get, but it's expensive for what i have :-). Also, i wouldn't want to get a first gen dx10 card anyway. I see what it does udner lost planet, and i shutter to think of psending 300 dollars on a card and not being able to play a dx10 game in a couple years on very high settings. Mid-range is more of my thing when it comes to graphic cards.

that it is, but it wouldn't support the yorkfield. I believe yorkfield needs to be hooked up with a p35 chipset - or the higher end one coming out.

I'm kinda thinking it might be worth it to buy the 200 dollar ASUS motherboard, and another thing. When is ddr3 memory going to be available cause I am looking at a p35 motherboard that only supports it. I'm kinda confused on that.
