Suggested Changes:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300

Mobo: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3

DVD Burner: Scrap one of those Lite-On burners, there is no reason whatsoever to have more than one dvd burner in a computer now.

Video Card: Sapphire Radeon X1900XT <--- Better Brand than Asus IMO, and $10 cheaper for the same specs.

Power Supply: Antec Truepower 550W <-- No need whatsoever for a 680W supply for this build.

Monitor: LG L1752TX

Modem: Drop it unless you have a specific reason for getting one.

Hard Drives: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB SATA2
