I don't know much about the mobo but Abit make good mobos so it's probably nice. Everything there looks like a solid build though, especially for an Ausie heh.

Since its an Ausie build and your selection is different I don't see anything wrong with the parts you have chosen hah.

If that were in in USD you could get for the money an MSI P6N mobo, an Antec True Power Trio 550w, G.skill DDR2-800, and a Centurion 5. However Like I said if not those parts are just fine.

G.skill DDR2-677 I will bet you can hit DDR2-800 at least as G.skill ram is made to overclock. Like I said it is a pretty cheap build and an 8800 series card in a 1000 build sounds good to me.
