Default Gaming Rig

First time build here and would like some opinions if you all arent burnt out on reading these ( i know theres alot and they all seem a little different ) if you need any links ill post them

Case - COOLER MASTER Praetorian PAC-T01-EK Black

Hard Drive (option 1) Western Digital Caviar SE16 250GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s

Monitor - SAMSUNG 710N-2-Black 17" 12ms LCD

Motherboard - DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D ATX AMD

Video Card - XFX PVT70GUDF7 Geforce 7800GT

DVD Drive - LITE-ON Black IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model SOHD-16P9SBLK

DVD Burner - NEC Black IDE DVD Burner Model ND-3540A

PSU - Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-500 500W

Memory - OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Platinum System

OS - Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Service Pack 2

Processor - AMD Athlon 64 4000+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939

Speakers - Logitech X-530 5.1

p.s. I wanted to know if it would be a good idea to dump the Mobo I got here and go with the ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe because it supports SATA 150 and I could get a 10krpm HD which seem to preform alot better than a 7200rpm

Go ahead. This PC looks awesome!

Stay with the LAN party and all the rest.
You can upgrade the hard drive if you want

Welcome btw! I like Dr.Juice. It looks like you're a gamer!

Those parts are great. The only thing is that ppl seem to have problems with XFX cards, but usually they are fine.

Looks great to me too. Keep that motherboard. I hear problems with that Asus board. DFI boards have very good reviews.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
