Not bad. Looks like you'll be upgradable for anything new Intel comes out with. Maybe spring for the 6800GS if that's a possibility.

I also wouldnt go with an XFX video card. They are great overclockers, but many people report them being DOA. Id go with eVGA or leadtek

The XFX with lifetime warranties are good. I wouldn't get any other XFX cards.

eVGA's lifetime warranty is better. It covers overclock damage.
