Default Give me your opinions on my first build!!!!

We'll im finally building it. Tell me what you guys think of it:

Case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811170012

Video Card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130249
(I like this one because for a few extra bucks its overclocked 70mhz and its a copper heatsink instead of an alluminu one)

Processor:

Heatsink:

Motherboard:

Memory:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227209
(I think ill add another GB later)

Hard Drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822140168

Optical Drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827152052

Power Supply:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103931

Its going to be used for gaming so I'm going to try and overclock it as far as I can. I dont have a soundcard because all I use are cheapy headphones... The only thing I've yet to pick are the 80mm case fans. For that I was thinking of getting 3 medium speed Panaflo's. Thanks for looking.

I've been researching this for almost a year. People have already yelled about getting a Maxtor, but I think im going to stick with it because you cant beat the price and I've heard its the faster 7200RPM drive. In my original build I was going to get 2 pairs of 512MB RAM in dual channel but I decided to get 2 sticks of 1GB RAM.

Depends on what you need the system for. I would NEVER pass up 1 extra gig of ram for a better video card. But hey, that's me.

Good build though. I overclocked my X2 3800+ to 2.4 Ghz with no temp gain (except a few degrees on full load, but it's still low)

If you can manage to get the 2x1GB kit of that ram rather than buying one gig now and one later you will save a bit of money (like $30). Other than that looks great. I'm getting the same memory BTW.
