Default Good gaming computer for xmas?

Case -

HardDrive -

Card -

MotherBoard -





DVD/CD Drive -

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.

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.
