    I think this sounds quite good. But I have some things you might wanna consider:


    1. PSU - Do I understand your post correctly that the case includes a 350W PSU and that is what you are going for? You might consider upgrading to around 500 with this prosessor and graphics card, especially if you consider overclocking.


    2. Video: The 8800 GTS 512MB is actually a newer and better card than the GTS 640Mb (New production prosess ++) Its about the same price.

    Zreddna gave some good advice. You might also consider dropping the sound card as the on board sound will probably just as good.

    Also, consider this case and powersupply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129024&Tpk=sonata%2bIII.
    They're more expensive then what you listed before, but both the case and the psu are great and the combo almost cannot be beat in value. It should run cooler and more quiet then the case that you listed.
