Default Strong System?

Hey, I don't have much general experience with computer components, but my old (Extremely old) computer finally gave up the ghost a few days ago, and I wanted to know if I could get some general opinions on this replacement rig, any really weak components, or unreliable combinations?

Yep, it looks good. You might want a better PSU, but otherwise it's great

Hmm, is the RAM PC400 (3200) or PC500 (4000), if it is the PC500 you need an AM2 correct?
