Default My new system specs

Hi Guys,
What do you think about my system specs?

Intel Q9550 Quad Core
Asus P5Q Deluxe
Corsair Dominitor PC8500 4GB
EVGA 9800 GTX+
Seagate 500GB SATA Drive
Antec P180 With NeoHE 500 Watt

and does anyone think the ATI HD4850 would go better with a Intel chip?

Thanks Guys

looks good..but if you haven't bought it yet, i'd recommend different RAM. dominators are like $40 more than RAM you will actually need/use..

get some 800mhz OCZ reapers for like $90-$99

Dominators are on sale $109 after rebate and it has a faster bus speed at 1066mhz

they're both the same. 1066 might have alittle more headroom but don't expect to hit above 1150mhz
