    The nforce4 mobo might not run with the CPU. Depending on the bios-version on the board, it won't even post. But if you are lucky, it already has the newest version and then it should work.

    The other issue is ram size. If you are planning on doing some serious gaming, you'll need 2 gig of memory. Current games like CoD2 or Oblivion already run faster/smoother with 2 gig, future games will require it to run properly.

    Apart from that, it's a good mid-to-high-end range gaming computer. Wouldn't mind having that CPU myself!

    Thats my only comment too. 1Gb in a gaming system just doesnt cut it anymore and hasnt for a while now IMO. I'd definately try to get 2Gb if you can afford it

    2Gb will also be a must for Vista....

    A lot of room for upgrades when the time comes. You should have gotten 2GB of memory instead of 1GB IMO.

    Looks good, the nforce4 mobo is a strange choice considering that nforce5 will be out soon, this is the second upgrade you'll have to make fairly soon, after the ram thing. 2x1gb modules seems to hit the sweet spot atm when it comes to ram, and I recomend that everyone buying a new pc gets this.

    It's going to be a very good pc though. Nice work.
