Default My Build, Input?

Here is a new build that I threw together for resale on eBay. I will most likely be overclocking it and then selling it for a small profit.

Is there anything that I am missing? Everything fully compatible (just making sure im not missing something)?

Any input (recommended parts, anything I should change/do) will be greatly appreciated!

Here are the specs:

XION Ultimate Engineering XON-002 Black/Silver SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 450 Watt (P4 & AMD Ready) Power Supply - Retail

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel

XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT XXX 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

Intel Pentium E2180 Allendale 2.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor

GeIL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model GX22GB6400UDCA= - Retail

SAMSUNG HD250HJ 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail

LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE Model DH-20A4P-04 - OEM

Sub-total- $482.93

Grand total- $548.76

Then I will have some rebates to drop the price a lil.

Thanks Guys!

Should I change the Processor to a Q6600 and the GPU to an 8800GT?

it truely depends on your budget...of coarse if you can offord those parts then yes your gaming experience will be much higher however a C2D T7200 with an 8800GS will make a much closer upgrade to your original price.

Do not use the power supply that comes with the case. I would get a Corsair 450vx.

They are ok for medium and low end, or when your on a tigher budget.

However, I haven't found a review for that specific one.

I owned a stallion 450w that i had from 2 Christmas ago. It is in a friends rig powering an E2140 OC'd to 3ghz and an overclocked 9600GT, one IDE hard drive, and one optical drive. He has no problems with it and it still is a nice solid PSU. I recommend the lower ends for people on a tight budget however the stallion 500w series treads to close to the 60 buck RP550V2 supply which is an awesome source.
