Well you could use faster ram

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

The E8400 is a great OC'r you could get the E8500 for a few bucks more

That PSU is craptastic lol I'm not thebest one to pick a PSU so I'll let someone else chime in

that psu is not TOO BAD but i personally don't like that brand, and have heard some bad things about them. A 550vx for the psu, maybe 750 tx if you want to spend that much, it is a great psu.

yeah, i would not get that ram,,, but 1066 IMO is pointless as you can oc 800mhz ram to that and even if you don't it's barely an increase in speed, also most 1066 kits (didn't bother to check that ocz kit) up the timings, which is worse. Id grab some ocz reapers or crucial ballistix.

Also, Do you really need that 285? Do you game, if so at what RES? Because a gtx 260 core 216 is cheaper and is a beast for 1680x1050, i know, i have one.

The only reason i chose the 1tb is because it was just as cheap as the 650 i had chosen thats all.
I will be gaming, but if you feel i should change the gfx card i will. Are you suggesting i change the mobo to the gigabyte or should i be all right with the asus mobo. I will change the psu, its not an issue. I will put up a new list soon.

I personally don't like ASUS motherboards in my opinion, i had 3 boards would crap out on me right after the warranty expired. But that was 4 years ago with the later models and probably just bad luck =(

Enermax make good power supplies. They aren't anywhere near PC P&C or Seasonic but they get the job done and done well.

For the motherboard go for the Biostar TPower i45 if overclocking if not then the P5Q is fine.

Looks good. Just a quick tidbit of info. A processor can't be ATX . You either got that from your motherboard or case info.
