But overall a good build.

Edit: No, one gig of ram is wayy too low. If you want 2 gigs of good, cheap, ram try this out:

Ya I didn't look to much at the 512mb sticks. I got my G.Skill fell in love so thats what I recomend LOL. Alot of people seem to like the Corsair XMS chips though.

Ya lowest end C2D but should be able to get it to a E6600 maybe E6700 level with some tweaking. Only thing is it has the lower cache. But for a budget system thats pretty good bang for the buck.
