Question Help with final new computer EDIT

Hey guys, i've posted this new computer idea a few times and everyones helped heaps, i've made what i think is close to my final edit. Can you all just have a quick browse over and suggest any final ideas/suggestions.

1.DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra D Motherboard
2.AMD ADA3700BNBOX 3700+ San Diego CPU
3.Antec Antec P180, Performance One, ATX MidiTower Case
4.Zalman CNPS7700-Cu CPU Cooler, Socket 478/775, AMD XP/64
5.Seagate Barracuda NCQ 120GB 7200rpm ATA150 Serial ATA HDD - 8MB Cache X2
6.OCZ 1024MB (2 x 512MB) PC3200 Enhanced Latency, Dual Channel Platinum DDR-RAM CL2, Rev2
7.OCZ PowerStream 520W Ultra-Quiet ATX PSU
8.Leadtek GeForce PX6800-TDH, 256MB, TV/DVI, PCI-Ex16
9.Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum
10.Microsoft Optical Desktop Elite for Bluetooth

P.s i'm not big on this whole overclocking thing, it's kind of new to me and after reading about the DFI mobo it seems to me an overclockers paradise so i think i'l start looking into overclocking, but as a standard default am i still gona ge pretty fu#kin good performance out of this system for gaming and vid editing and stuff like that.

Thanks All for you help,

Looks pretty damn good. The only thing is maybe you should change your video card. Most people would either say get the 6600GT, or if you can afford it, bump up to the 6800GT. The plain 6800 doesn't perform nearly as well as the GT.

The one below is only $57 more after rebate than the one you picked:

If it's too much, you could bump down to this 6600GT:

Anyway, the rest of the system looks fantastic.

2x 512MB Crucial PC3200 DDR SDRAM
eVGA Nvidia 128MB e-Geforce 6600GT 8x AGP
WD 74GB Raptor SATA HD (10,000 RPM)
NEC 16x DVD +/- R/RW Writer
MyHD 120 PCI HDTV tuner card

You could oc the 6800, but still the 6800gt is better, if not get a 6600gt.
First got a computer 4 years ago. Windows ME. Got second hand computers with different operating systems from my family members to play around with...
