Default Looking At This Set-up This Fall

I have been trying to learn as much as possible about building a gaming pc.

I have priced the following pc at newegg that i would like to build in the fall. This will be my FIRST BUILD.

The total with shipping and after rebates is $1645.

I am pretty much set on most of the components...I WILL NOT BE OVERCLOCKING.

I would like to get the total down to $1500...so i may switch Power Supplies and dump the smaller hard drive and maybe add a 2nd hard drive later. I just wanted a small hard drive for just my operating system .

Anyways enough rambling...i need to know what you guys think and if this WOULD be a GOOD GAMING PC for most of the newer games.

If you are going to wait until fall, you might want to wait on pricing all together.

I am really hoping the prices on this stuff drops a decent amount come fall, if not i may spend alittle more to have the newer technology.

Would the above set-up still play most of the newer games pretty well if i decide to stay with this set-up...i mean in 2 years time could i still be playing most 1st person shooter games on like medium settings, even if i had to use 800X600 resolution?
