Everything looks good to me, but wouldn't you want a DVD burner instead of a DVD-ROM? That drive doesn't look like it will burn anything.

Well, you are running a motherboard with an NVIDIA chipset and it is SLI compatible. If you are going to pay 250 bucks for that mobo, you might as well SLI two 7600GTs (they go for about 100-120 each so you'd pay same price). Also, your PSU is SLI ready as well.

It's really not that hard to put together a PC, but take your time, you don't want to ruin anything.

The only other thing I can think of is if you're going to be overclocking, you might want a new heatsink for your CPU.
