yeah, like every other freaking manufacturer, just cuz their failure precent mite be a half of a % higher than everyone elses doesn't make them the worst company in the world
the chance of you getting a bad card is extremely small no matter what company you choose, i would just go with it if it has gotten good reviews
rest of ur build looks fine
edit: you might want a better monitor, try to get a 8ms refresh rate, and try to go dual core (get the X2 4400+)
