Default Proposed new rig

This is my new proposed rig (with some advice from the gurus ) just wanted some feedback. As my budget was originally 500 but new job means money so im stretching it to 620.

Antec Nine Hundred Case
Intel C2D E6600 Retail
ASUS P5b-E Socket 775
2x 1GB Corsair Twinx XMS2 PC-6400 DHX
nVidia GeForce 8600GT 256MB PCI-E
320GB Seagate barracuda SATAII 16mb
ThermalTake W0143RE 550W Mod PSU
Audigy 7.1 soundcard
52-1 card reader (internal/black)
BenQ 16x DVD+/-RW (Black)

This roughly comes to 613 inc vat & free delivery. Any thoughts pls let me know.

Id say save up for a better card, everything in your rig is really nice except for that card. Still good but thats just my opinion.

Default Re: Proposed new rig

any opinions in which gfx card? only reason im trying to stay in budget is because i need to purchase a new monitor but instead have decided to get a cheapish 24inch hdtv because im also purchasing a ps3 at the end of august
so makes sense to get the hdtv so can use it for both the ps3 and my new rig.
