The power supply is completely overkill...and it's not of very good quality. Get this instead:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371007

I don't think it's wise to get an Intel motherboard for an Nvidia card- especially if you maybe want to pick of another 9800GT along the line to SLI with. (If you plan to SLI, maybe picking up a 550W PSU wouldn't be a bad idea).

The E8400 is fine, if you plan to OC, the E3110 may be a better choice.

Your case comes with a POS 400W PSU- get a different case that doesn't come with one, and that's of better quality. Cooler Master makes some great cheap cases.

As for your grand 8GB of RAM idea- it wouldn't be beneficial. You will see virtually no speed increase. Nothing will ever use 8GB of RAM. (I'd be much better to save for another 9800 GT)

The PSU is still overkill, and again, I doubt that it's of good quality (I'm unfamiliar with hec).

The case, on the other hand, is great.

Also, in case you didn't understand what I meant by the Intel motherboard.

It has a P45 chipset. This is an Intel chipset, and generally used with ATI cards. Although it will work with a single 9800 GT, If you ever want to get another 9800GT, you won't be able to. I'm unsure if the performance will degrade, you'll need to wait for a more knowledgeable person to answer that- but if you get a chipset manufactured by Nvidia, like the 750i, you could SLI in the future.

However, if you get a 4850, you will be able to buy another 4850 in the future, and it will work perfectly if your motherboard had more Express x 16 slots...which it doesn't. Maybe switch mobos?

A good 550W PSU will cost you $80-100....you sure?
