why would u spend 260 dollars on ddr2 800 ram, 80-120 dollars is more then sufficent for top quality ram

and ull want xp pro 64bit if u go with xp and if u plan on overclocking im not to sure about that cpu cooler, actually nvr heard of it, but otherwise it looks real nice, and no comment on the tuner, but from experience, cheap tuners are not the way to go, u might as well get top quality or ntohing cause if its blurry why would u watch it anyways

if you say it's for very ligh gaming I'd go with a 8800GT or HD3870, not much difference performance-wise and both are cheaper that the G92 GTS.

Also, I don't see the need for a ~$200 PSU, maybe a good $100, $120 one will suffice (I'm no PSU expert, so maybe someone else can help there)

You could use the saved money for a bigger screen perhaps.

Anyway, It does looks great as it is.
