1. is this is a good setup it all comes to about 1.3g or 1.1 depending on the mobo
2. is everything compatible with each other
3. is putting this together going to be complicated and painstaking

I already have a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. will I need anything else like any cooling systems to fininsh this setup.

thanks

You should definitely save up a little more and get an 8800GTS. Maybe sacrifice the E6600 for an E6300. Or yeah, just get the DS3 instead of the eVGA motherboard. But yeah, the 8800GTS turns circles around the 7950GT.

Other than that, looks fine to me.

as above, if you have the extra cash then go for the 8800 card, but if not then this is a very good card, i play Battlefield 2142 alot and ive got all the settings on high and highest screen res for my 17"TFT and it looks great and i get good FPS
