Default DONE with PC Build, let me know what you guys think...

I've been gathering information over the last couple of weeks trying to come up with the best home built PC possible. Here it is...

https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...Money+PC+Build

- Case - Cooler Master Centurion 5
- Motherboard - ASUS P5B Socket T
- Video Card - GeForce 7900gto
- PSU - Thermaltake 500W
- Processor - Core 2 Duo E6400
- RAM - GSkill 2 X 1GB DDR2 800 RAM
- Hard Drive: Seagate 400 GB SATA
- Cooling: MassCool cooling fans

Any alterations you guys would made. You think it is worth replacing the power supply with the OCZ 600W Power Supply ($90 on ZipZoomFly). Additionally, I'm planning on getting the ASUS P5B board, however, there is the P5B-E board $17 more. Does that model pose any benefits or should I stick with the P5B.

Also, would you guys stick with an ASUS board or maybe go with the Gigabyte DA-965P...

Let me know what you all think, thanks!

if i were you i would get a cheaper hard drive maybe a 250 gig for around $80, get a 1gb stick of DDR2 800 RAM and then upgrade later.

and with the money you save get a E6600
