Everything is good becides CPU. Wait 2 months Intel Core 2 Duo comes out and that will just rape that CPU over and over and over and over and over.

Or if you dont feel like waiting now. Get a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+, DFI Lanpart Ut nf4, and 2x1gb of dual channel ram.

I suggest 2 gig of memory and Fuxy_Muxy's choice of G.Skill is a good one.
