Tax refund can't come soon enough. (Ok, most of it will be out of pocket but still...)

My finalized new build:

Antec Nine Hundred
Asus P5N-E SLI
Corsair 620HX PSU
Zalman 9700
Core 2 Duo E6600
2GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 CL4
eVGA 7950GT 512MB
Seagate 320GB HD
Lite-on SATA DVD burner
Vista Business OEM

Those are just the major components, I figured I can get all of it for ~$1,650 at Newegg.

Why don't you buy a cheap GPU, then upgrade to DX10 later. What are you doing with this computer? Just gaming?

2nd'ed, if he's upgrading to dx10 card. If he is, the most expensive video card he should get is 7900gs. Otherwise, the setup looks good.

Light gaming, I want high quality stuff in it though. Mostly general usage though. I don't intend to get a DX10 card for a while.

I picked the 512mb card in case I find myself gaming more.
