PROCESSOR : Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 2x1.86GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor, 64bit, Dual Core Technology, 1066MHz FSB

MOTHERBOARD: ECS P965 Board

MEMORY : AMPO DDR2-667 RAM

RAPHICS CARD : nVidia GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16

HARD DRIVE : 250 GB 7200RPM Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s

SOUND CARD : AC97 6 Channel Integrated Sound (onboard)

System will be used for slight gaming, nothing too crazy. Will not be over clocked, and I'm also looking for future expandability. This is just a basic system, I'm hoping to gain some suggestions for possible changes to the specs.

You have two memory speeds on there (533 & 667) and what's your budget?

If you can live with 1 gig to start, go with DDR2-800 Fastest at the FSB and CPU stock speeds.
If you need to cut back go with a E4300 and the DDR2-667.

Good Mid range Vid Card. I am looking at that series or a ATI X1950. Both in the $120 range.

Make to check the +12v rails for as many amps as the Vid card. I went with a PSU with 2 22A rails.
