Default 800-900 dollar gaming computer

ok guys i saw what you did for the guy with 1500 to build a gaming computer..now i saw great results because u guys know a lot...now here is my idea for my 800-900 dollar gaming computer

amd3200+
evga nforce4 sli mobo or msi if i do am2
evga 7900ko
1gb ddr500 or ddr2 800....later another to do 2gb dual channel
creative labs sound blaster
hitachi desktar SATA 3gb/s 80gb (i only need around 80 not too much)
antec truepower 550watts sli support
antec solution slk3000 case black

now if u had 800-900 dollars to spend and u didnt need a mouse or keyboard what would be ur setup...this way i can kind of compare because i still wont be building for a while.....thx

That's pretty good. However, those HDD's are cheap... throw in another one and RAID 'em!

true u have a point...but i want 7900 because...its only 100 dollars more..and...twice the pixel piplines...and 256bit...so it should be performing much better..well maybe...i just want something more then a 7600gt...but thx...ill look up some 7600gt vs 7900gt and see teh diff.
