That's a nice setup.

But I would suggest getting this card: Geforce 8800GS 384MB for $30 more if you want to play COD4 and other games. The 8500 is an entry level card and at best would be only able to play those games at low settings.

No, it's only 30 more. The 8500 is 69.99, the 8800GS is 99.99.

If that's too much to swing, you could just get the basic bundle as it has onboard graphics, then when you can afford it, get the higher performing video card.

Actually for cheaper, you can get a better selection buying seperately:

I built a set up for my mate a month age using nearly the same gear. His has the 5000+ and 1GB memory and it's pretty good for the money. I would suggest going with worshipme's idea cause you'll get a better motherboard & memory for starters.
