Default Re: How good are my choice of hardware?

Thanks for the replies!
I've been looking and thinking some more, and come up with a new configuration:

Motherboard:
ASRock - CONROE1333-GLAN, Intel 945GC, FSB533/800/1066/1333, GIGALAN, 8 Channel Surround Audio, SATAII RAID, Dual DDRII-533/667, LGA775 - Core 2 Duo Supported

CPU:
Intel - Core 2 Duo (Conroe) Model E6320 (1.866GHz), EM64T (EM64T), 1066FSB, 4MB Cache (LGA775), BOX
or
Intel - Core 2 Duo (Wolfdale) Model E8400 (3.0GHz), Dual Core, EM64T, 1333FSB, 6MB Cache (LGA775), BOX (I would have to wait maybe 1 month for this)

DVD-drive:
Pioneer - DVR-212, DVD±RWx18, DVD±R DLx4, SATA, Internal, Dual Layer, 2MB, White, Bulk

RAM:
Corsair - Twin2X 2x1024MB DDR2, PC6400 DDR800, CAS 5-5-5-12-T2, Twin2X2048-6400

PSU: (as suggested here)
Corsair - CMPSU-520HXEU, 520 Watt, 120mm Fan, Power Effecient, Cable Management / Modular Cables, 19 - 35 db, Temp. Auto Control

Harddisc;
Hitachi - 320 GB – SATA300 (Fluid) – 7200 RPM / 16MB - Deskstar T7K500

Graphics card: (The cost of 8800 series is more than double, and I would rather upgrade that later unless you think my choice is really bad)
BFG - GeForce 8600GTS OC (Overclocked), 256MB GDDR3, Dual DVI, TV-Out, HDTV, BFG ThermoIntelligence, PCI-Express, Retail

Better?

I just found these at a good price:
XFX - GeForce 8800GS, 384MB GDDR3, Dual DVI, TV-Out, HDTV, HDCP Ready, PCI-Express, Retail

and this one:

XFX - GeForce 8800GS (Overclocked), 384MB GDDR3, Dual DVI, TV-Out, HDTV, HDCP Ready, PCI-Express, Retail

There is also this one:
Asus - EN8800GS/HTDP/384M, GeForce 8800GS, 384MB GDDR3, Dual DVI, TV-Out, HDTV, HDCP Ready, PCI-Express, Retail

But what about motherboard?
I have a hard time finding out what I really need from a motherboard.

when you suggested either the e6320 or the e8400, get the e8400 hands down.

the other guys got most of this handled.
and look at the mobo that invisible suggested up at the top. good board

well for cpu i think he could save more money and get the e2200 instead and oc easily to 2.6 or 2.8 on stock volt, EASILY

if your willing to spend money for the e6750, you might as well get the 8400.
