Looks good but you'll want more than a 9500GT for gaming, it's not really designed for it and you'll definitely have problems with newer games. Try 9800GT, GTS250 or GTX260 depending on your budget, or HD4830, HD5840 or HD4870 for the ATi equivelants.

Depends on what resolution you're playing at, and what level of graphics you want to play the games at.

Don't buy the ultra PSU. They are not known for making good PSUs. Read the Power Supply Guide for recommendations.

Yep, different PSU and better graphics card. Other than that it looks pretty good to me.

One more thing guys if u check back. I want to go with the GTX260 216 that with a Enermax-500watt with +12V 1-24A and +12V 2-24 A. Is that enough power for the system or do I need more.
