My new gaming rig, suggestions needed.

Here's what I've picked out for my new gaming rig. My budget right now is around $2000-2100 for the system alone. That's not including monitors, input devices, and speakers/sound card. I'm trying to build a system that will last me for the next 2-4 years or so. I'm planning to overclock to at least around 3.0Ghz on the E6600. I also want to build a system that has plenty of expansion space. If if all you pros could help me revise my parts for a noob builder like myself, I would greatly appreciate it.

Case: Lian Li PC-V1000APlus II (Silver)
PSU: SeaSonic S12-600 ATX12V 600W Power Supply
Mobo: ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 975X ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4 Ghz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6600 - Retail
GPU: eVGA 768-P2-N831-AR GeForce 8800GTX 768MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card
RAM: CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1 GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC6400) Dual Channel Kit Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4
HDD1: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0GB/s Hard Drive - OEM
CD/DVD-RW: NEC Black 16X DVD +/- R/RW - OEM
CPU Fan: ZALMAN CNPS9500 LED 92mm 2 Ball Blue LED Light Cooling Fan with Heatsink – Retail
?Case Fans?: Scythe 4710KL-04W-B19-V54 120mm Case Fan – Retail x3

I'm not to sure about the PSU, I've heard some mixed review that some were faulty while other SeaSonic S12 600W ran great. I'm also not to sure about my RAM choice. I plan to eventually run a dual 20.1" monitor setup. If there's anything else you want to know about let me know. I'm hoping to order everything by the end of this week.

  1. Considering there is only a $22 price difference between the ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI and the EVGA nForce 680i SLI $250 I'd suggest getting the 680i motherboard.

    It's a good looking list. If you're unsure of the SeaSonic S12 PSU you can step up a size and save enough to pay the difference in motherboards. FSP Group FX700-GLN 700W Quad $125 after rebate or OCZ GameXStream 700W $125 after rebate
