Ram is good.
CPU - Go to a 6600 which is more standard now.
GPU - If you don't have vista then you don't need that. Just get a 7900GT.
Mobo - Get a better one and a better quality board. Go with an Asus or a EVGA Board.

Also you might be better off getting a AMD based build mainly because there at times cheaper.

AMD is Happy!
Intel is Pissed!
Europe is $1.45 Billion Dollar's Richer!

RAM, mobo and CPU are OK. The E6550 has better FSB, and cache compared to the E6600. Now, for the GPU, if you don't have Vista, and don't plan to, get the 7 series.
