Default New Gaming rig.

Well, I'm putting together a new gaming rig and I wanna let you see what I've come up with to make sure I'm doing it right before I spend a buncha money on it. My budget is around $1,100.00 and is slightly flexible.

Mobo: Gigabyte P35-DS3R
Case: Antec Nine Hundred
Harddrive: Seagate 7200.1 320gb 16mb cache
Videocard: EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 320mb
PowerSupply: XCLIO Greatpower 550w
OperatingSystem: Windows Vista 64bit
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 2GB DDR2 800
CD/DVD: Newegg.com - LG Black 18X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 10X DVD+R DL 18X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache E-IDE/ATAPIDVD Burner - OEM

as for the processor I plan on getting a E6750. Would the mobo be compatible for overclocking? I plan on getting the AF7, but I can get the tuniq if necessary.

Hows this build look? I plan on ordering parts tommmorrow so please respond ASAP. Thanks

u might want 4gb for 64bit, 32bit 2gb is fine, yes its compatabile, if u get an e6750, get an AF7 from SVC.com

ur saying this because u were gonna recommend a 640mb for higher resolutions right?

its been proven that the 640mb isn't worth the extra cash..... 100$ for an extra 2-3 fps on high resolutions

Oh, well I'll just stick with 32bit then. I was wondering how high could I probably overclock the e6750 to with the AF7?

My moniter will only be at max 22".
