Talking New Build Ordered!

I posted awhile back on the Computer Hardware/Software forum about my build and any suggestions to change anything. Most of you said it was good and some suggested a couple changes. After following the changes, here is my final build I just ordered. Just got the money saved up. (Ordered already, can't make any more changes)

Case (COOLER MASTER Elite 330): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811119115
GPU (EVGA 7600GT): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130062 (Got 1 already, not for SLI, for tri-monitors)
MOBO (EVGA 122-CK-NF63-TR 680i): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813188019
PSU (Antec True Power Trio): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16817371002
CPU (E6600): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819115003
RAM (CORSAIR XMS2 2GB): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820145034
HDD (Western Digital 160GB): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822136075 (got another 320GB SATA to pull from my old system)
HSF (ZALMAN CNPS9500): http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835118003
Case Fan: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835150073

Already got thermal paste, an optical drive, and the case comes with one fan, so I only needed 1 more. Most of the stuff had free shipping, so it only cost $15ish for 3-day UPS, I'm happy rather than paying $70 for 2-day, or even more for 1 day UPS or anything FedEx... UPS hasn't dropped my packages out of an airplane *yet* (famous last words)...

Upgrading from:
Pentium 4 2.8GHz HT Prescott socket 478
ASRock P4i65G
1GB PC3200 random brand ram
FX5200 AGP 128MB
Matrox PCI graphics card
80GB IDE Western Digital
320GB SATA Western Digital
DVD+/-RW
Stock HSF
Random 400W PSU
PCI firewire card

Should I keep this system or sell it? I got a couple other systems I can sell also, but I want to get some money for 3 LCDs. The 320GB HDD will be pulled for this new system, probably the Matrox card also (but to keep for another older system). If sell, how much would it be worth? If you need to know, it can play BF2 in it's current state, not max settings of course...

It's not bad I guess. If you need the money, I say sell your old PC. No sense on having two unless you want to use it for something else like a server or dump PC.

Yo man nice build, I have the EXACT same one but with a bit of a better GPU. The cpu/mobo combo is killa. Just one problem though, the mobo is 1066Mhz FSB only, so you will have to get a new one if you wanted a quad.

I'd looove that SATA HD actually. Wanna hook me up?

Good hard drive choice. I have the 500GB Caviar version with 16MB of Cache, and the thing runs cool n quiet while giving awesome performance!

I'm pulling the 320GB HDD, it's still got an 80GB IDE HDD. I'm also pulling the 16x DVD burner, but I got an older 4x DVD burner to put in it. I'm pulling the matrox PCI card because it's got an FX5200, and most people only use 1 monitor with thier PC, so it won't be needed. Still a whole PC...just not quite as good as I have it ATM.

You got the Tuniq Tower, so not exact Eh, no biggie to me, probably won't be upgrading this system for awhile, this is a pretty big upgrade to me that will last me awhile. I'm not a gaming freak, I just needed more power for the programs I do use.

I think I'll keep my soon to be new WD HDD, they aren't too expensive, check out newegg, lol

I think it will be plenty fast for me. I'm not sure if I will venture into overclocking, but I might try. Not to the point of needing water cooling though.

The 320GB Western Digital I got has 16MB cache and is SATAII, just been using it on a SATA 1.5Mbps MOBO, so haven't gotten the full performance out of it yet. It's very quiet, as is my 80GB Western Digital, even my 2 yr old 120GB WD is still fairly quiet.
