600w nice

Great selection of parts, the 2xx GPUs are loved on these forums. You should get some really nice gaming performance from this. You thought about things like a gamin mouse + k/b, a monitor, which OS you're getting, yet?

how fast is your RAM gonna be...? 800mhz...? 1066mhz...?

if your monitor resolution is gonna be 1680x1050 or less the GTX260 or 280 will be more than you need, probably overkill, but great for if you plan on upgrading your monitor any time soon...

a good 500w psu should be fine, but 600w would give you some headroom for upgrading in the future...

how much gaming are you gonna do...? at what resolution (what's the native resolution of your monitor)...?

if your resolution isn't over 1680x1050 than a 4830 would be enough and would also be way cheaper...

Sapphire 4830 with HDMI

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066

Antec Neo Power 430 430W

how much is that GPU? I searched it on Newegg and got like $300-400 on it...if your gonna play WoW your GPU doesn't need to be that expensive...ever considered going with Intel?
