I have never heard of that graphics card manufacturer. Its best to stay with the well known makes. I just got a BFG 7800gt and I am very pleased with its BIOS performance (need new hdd and dvd drive.) BFG comes with life time warranty. Everyone here likes eVGA due to their exchange policy. Leadtek has a huge heatsink on them.

Geil ram is meant to be quite a nice overclocker for the price. (according to the forums at overclockers.)

How much RAM are you getting? 2gb is starting to become the normal on new gaming computers.

Just a little word of warning, be careful in cheap cases, as you easily cut your self, and I never noticed it, and I end up getting blood all over cheap cases.

It looks good though.

don't get the Audigy 2, use the money for other things. the DFI board has a good 7.1 sound card.

I don't plan to OC the ram, I'm getting a gig of ram and i have worked with this case before and it's not that bad on the edges. i think that the vidoe card has a decent warranty

Decent warranty doesn't mean anything. Just get a better name brand card, and you won't need the warranty (hopefully).

If you are planning to use this computer for gaming then a X2 is not nessecary. That is generally used for multi-tasking. If you are looking for gaming use one of the FX Series.

the brand is good, its Asutrailia what do you expect

GET X2 DO NOT LISTEN TO THE GUY ABOVE ME, GAMES WILL UTILIZE DUAL CORES AND IT WILL DESTROY THE FX SERIES.
