Good build. If you plan on gaming, I would upgrade that graphics card.

I agree with OhSnapWord, good choices. I prefer ASUS over Gigabyte and newegg.com or Amazon.com over tigerdirect.

The 932 is a very nice case. I think you will be very happy with.

I personally like Gigabyte boards. ASUS does make a great motherboard as well. It's a matter of which has the features you want for the price you want to pay.

Anyways this is what I have decided for. Will order today just need one final review.
I thought I could use the GTS 450 for now unless you think itís really bottlenecking my specs. I will use primary for gaming and Photo editing with CS5.

Thanks.
