Hows this for a mid level gaming computer. Now keep in mind that im asking if i should go with brand a vrs. brand b. I just want to know if these parts will perform for what i want to do.

Most of the time it will be used by the family for email and internet use, but i like to jump on and play a few games here and there. (Supreme Commander,CIV4, Fear, ect.

Max resolution on my LCD is 1280x1024 so id like to be able to play at it.

a lot for a AMD motherboard, do you really need SLI?
Are you going to overclock the RAM? Awful high end if your not.
Not as big, but same price, Seagate 7200.10 320. Sweet drive

Overall, nice build.

No SLI planned for the resolution I game at, but correct me if im wrong. But it seems like if you want a full featured board you have to go with a SLI board.

I know it can very hard to find a non-SLI MB but they are out there. List the things you must have, and we can walk through them.
