video card is okay, but not so sure about mobo. most of the problems during a computer build can be back traced to the mobo, i would suggest getting a more trustable brand of mobo, like asus, abit, and DFi

Be warned the 6600gt is beginning to not be able to run new games. it's unable to run F.E.A.R. without a lag.(At least mine can't)

Ahh, see? Thats where it gets people. ePox isnt a good mobo maker? I think they are pretty damn good. Their S9393 Nforce 4 Ultra mobo was up there with DFI when it comes to overclocking and performance. and ABIT has gone downhill. Stay away from them.

i would also suggest looking at a bfg 6600gt since they are slightly oc'ed, but i think gigbyte is a better companied and its also slighty oc'ed
