Lies. You're going to overclock it and run Oblivion at like 100 FPS on a LCD the size of a wall.

Why the ASUS P5N32 in lieu of the P5B Deluxe or P5W? I mean, by this point we kinda sorta know which moboards go with what chip. ASUS P5B Deluxe/P5W go with E6600+ whereas Gigabyte DS3 goes with E6300 and E6400. But ASUS P5N32? I honestly haven't heard of it.

I second the P5B Deluxe option, its a rocks olid performer. The Nvidia chips dont work well with Intel.

DONT buy corsair. Buy ANY brand of DDR2 800 with 4-4-4-12 timings, theyll be using the same Micron chips as corsair, therefore delivering the same performance.

Get the X1900XT 256mb, it outperforms the 7950GT and its alot cheaper. Great overclocking potential too.

What are you using the two drives for??
Unless you want them in a RAID 0 configuration (where usually two identical drives are used), go with a single HDD. A Barracuda 7200.10 preferably.

I have never heard Asus makes good optical drives. Good Intel mobos with Intel chipsets yes, but not that. Try looking for somethign cheaper, there must be, Lite-On is particulary a good brand at a nice price tag.

Get the X1900XT 256MB or 512MB instead of the 7900GT.

First, don't skimp of the PSU. Go back the OCZ model, it's pricey, but definately worth it. Get a 250GB caviar, I've never heard of disco HD's, and paying extra for a name is pretty important if you like feeling good about your data. As for the video card, the X1900 IS a bit faster in most games, but since you didn't list games as one of your primary uses, go for whichever you can find cheaper of the 7900 and 1900

why 2 hard drives? and why an 80gb and a 400gb instead of 2x250gbs?

anyway, i would go for the newest seagate barracudda 7200.10 hard drives with perpindicular recording, fastest 7200 hdd's on the planet.

Are you from Brazil or Portugal??

If the OCZ was being too pricey, check out the Antec NeoHE series if you have access to them.
Again the X1900XT 256mb ill PWN the 7900GT.
Is that memory the cheapest in its class and CL4??
For the guy above, "Disco" means Disk in portuguese. Wich brand, model?

yeah im from Portugal.

THe X1900XT will pwn 7900GT maybe in games.. but i want to get an nvidia card because of its compatibility with 3dsoftware.

The Disk.. i dont know what brand it is. I took these specs from the computer store.. its s pc they assemble for 1300euros. not all info is specified.

no man be careful, go up to them and tell them to crack open the comp so you can see what youll be getting (been there, done that lol). Then come back here and post the specs.
Why buying when you can build anyways? The european market might be a bit more expensive but its still worth it to build.
