Default Family PC Build, Rate Plz

I was asked to come up with a family PC, plz rate, and tell me if i missed anything. Or if i should change something.

• Thermaltake VB6000BWS
• BenQ DQ60 DVD+RW
• AMD Athlon 64 3700+
• Altec Lansing 120i 2.0
• Acer AL1751B 17" LCD
• OCZ Performance Series 2 GB
• Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 160GB
• DFI Lanparty UT Ultra-D
• BenQ M106-BE
• Logitech (967453-0403) Office Pro Black Keyboard
• BFG Geforce 7900 GT 256MB
• OCZ PowerStream 520Watts
• Arctic Silver 5

Are all the parts compatible? Is there any bottlenecking going on? Anything else?

It all looks good to me. just make sure that you buy the PCI-e version of the video card so it fits in the DFI motherboard. Also, make sure you buy DDR not DDR2.

Wow, don't you think that's a little overkill for a family PC?

Umm that's faster than a mid-ranged gaming computer. No need for the DFI mobo, 7900GT and that CPU.
