Default A Perfect New Computer

Building a New Computer

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My girlfriend tells me to tell her whatever I want for my birthday, she will get it for me. Money being no object. I've been needing a new high quality computer, and after tons of research and various discussions. This is what I have come up with.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GeForce 6800 GT OC 256MB GDDR3 AGP Graphics Card

ASUS "K8V SE Deluxe" K8T800 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket 754 CPU

AMD Athlon 64 3200+

Logitech MX510 Optical Gaming Mouse - Red

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, so I'm left with two questions that I would greatly appreciate being helped on ^^

-Is this a good setup that will work together well for all the new games out there?

-What kind of memory do I need to get with this new system?
