Yeah, that's a nice PC, I would maybe upgrade that PSU, 500 watts might not cut it for a system that's that high end, but the included one is pretty decent. Other than that, you have a sweet system. Buy some case lights or something!!

If you really HAD to upgrade something, I'd say trade that DDR2 800 for some DDR2 1066. That would be smokin'. Also, I guess you could get the 8800 GTX graphics card, but I don't think you really need that fast of a graphics card right now, I would at least wait until ATI comes out with their new R600 DirectX 10 core.

bad choice in watercooling parts. Aluminum + copper = disaster strikes. Once you mix metals that aren't neutral, massive corrosion to the blocks/radiators occur. Your brand new spankin water cooling set up will be useless. So, i advise you to either, custom build your loop, or choose one of the kits from www.petrastechshop.com

The thing is, those cheapy 100 dollar kits are going to do you no good as they probably use aluminum in them as aluminum is a lot cheaper than copper. I would rather go high end air and save 50 bucks rather than buy a 100 buck kit. Just my $.02

air cooler? Does it matter the size, as bigger ones tend to give the best performance.
