Nice build

I would change the motherboard and CPU to this if I were you

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Dual-Core Processor - Retail

The CPU cost more but the motherboard cost less than the AMD motherboard you have posted. In other words, the whole Intel build would cost you the same

Yea, an Intel would have been better but I didn't want to OC that much, if I OC at all it would be minimal thats why I choose AMD
