looks fine
7900gt ko and co have some issues i forget which one is the good one so look into that.
you can find a better psu for cheaper. 680w is a bit much, 500w should be plenty.
also you can get a 250GB hdd with a 16MB cache for about $10 more.
hope this helps.

for the psu i like the enermax 535w here....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103512
it has dual +12V rails at 18A and is SLI certified. covers just about anything.

and here is the hdd i mentioned....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144701
mail in rebate and free shipping make it actually cheaper than the one you chose.

For the OS I'd suggest Win Xp.
Though recently I have started to hate Win Xp because it doesn't seem to work properly , but after a quick reformat I think I'm going to like Win Xp again.

The storage capacity and cost makes this a great deal.
