Default Final Build, Last Opinions?

Ok I actually got the money for selling my pc almost a month earlier than expected causing me to buy a new pc like now. I will be ordering by the end of this week so heres what I got. I have $1075 to spend including shipping and its just for the box. Heres what I have:

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel, SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

SAMSUNG 18X DVD�R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write Black E-IDE/ATAPI Model SH-S182D - OEM

G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4S-1GBPK - Retail

eVGA 256-P2-N615-TX Geforce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail

Well thats what I came up with, I might get a 7900gto if they still have them some time after xmas as well as another gb of ram. I plan to run some old scsi drives with this that are fast but are really low in storage so thats why I am getting that large sata drive. I am getting two of those kingwin 80mm's for some intake instead of the 120mm in the back doing all the work. Any other little goodies will be done later 2007.

Yeah and I can upgrade the ram and video card after x-mas. I think of dx10 this way, I just bought a video card for a couple hundred dollars that is faster but I mainly bought it for dx10. Oh wait Vista isnt out yet and wont be for a couple more months. Plus it might have some bugs the first couple of months and I should wait. Then I need to get $150 together to buy it. Not trying to put down Vista or dx10, but I am not waiting anymore. My year and a half has been enough!
