Default Opinions on my build...

I'm building a computer to be able to play anygame in med-high detail in the current market, including FSX


-Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 2.13GHz
-Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB
-Corsair DDR2 PC2-5400 667MHz Value Select 2GB (2x1045MB) 240-pin Unbuffered DIMM
-Asus P5NSLI Socket 775 nVidia nForce 570 SLI Dual Channel DDDR2 533/667 Dual PCI-Express Graphics Slots
-Asus nVidia GeForce 7950GT 512MB
-Antec SmartPower 2.0 500 Watt PCI-E Ready.


This all ends up costing $1,300USD after taxes.

Anyways let me know what you think of my build, will all the parts work/work well with eachother, and suggestions/changes to my list are welcome and what you think of the final cost of it all and if you think it worth it, thx. (A note that I am not going to overclock any parts)

I was going to suggest DDR2 800 ram, but since you are not overclocking (which you should with any C2D), then I guess it's ok. That system, should play any games out right now, on high settings.
