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

-AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchestor
-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
-2x 1024 Corsair XMS Pro

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.

so, umm, err yeah
