all looks good, might wanna splurge for a Newegg.com - Tuniq Tower 120 P4 & K8 CPU Cooler - Retail

also, what reso. you running in, you might wanna grab a 8800gts 640 for longevity purposes...

One more thing, it may be wise to wait till July 22 when the intel prices drop, then you could get a q6600 for basically the same price (a little more) than a e6600. See the exact prices at Intel Price Roadmap analyzed

Nobody commented on the Logitech speakers, i have the X-530's (5.1) there less powerful than the THX versions and even these sound absolutely fantastic in games and especially music, ive got them connected to an X-fi xtreme sound card.
My house stereo hasnt been used once since i got these speakers lol sounds 10 times better with thumping bass
