Looks nice but the PSU seems a little overkill for the system unless you plan on some HUGE upgrading (like some SLI-ing). If I were you though I would go ahead and save a little more and wait a couple weeks for Neweggs X2 4400+ to come down in price (to about $210). Trust me, you will be glad you did.

I may have to wait a few weeks anyway, but thanks for that tip. I didn't know they were going to drop again. As for the PSU yeah, it does seem like a lot more power than I'd need, but I was going to go with dual 7600 GS's and was told I should get a 600 watt supply. Since I dropped the dual cards I don't need so much power but I am planning on using 2 7900 GT's in the future, I just don't know when.

If you are going with the two 79's then keep the PSU you have now, but if you are a gaming enthusiast you will probably end up with a DX10 card before another 7900GT (or at least I would) since they are (supposedly) coming out somewhere between Q4 of this year and Q1 of next year. Anyways, with that 79 and the 4400 you will be hooked up for a while!
