Budget build for a friend

This is what he is planning to get. He plays tf2 and plan on playing COD5, starcraft 2 and Diablo 3. He will prolly use it for the next 2-3 years but he plays at low res and won't go higher than 1600*1200 (maybe upgrade to 4gb and a better cpu after 1 year). I plan on OC it to ~3 ghz (333 fsb to match memory 1:1).

radeon 4850
gigabyte ep35-ds3l
Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-5400C4 2GB 2X1GB PC2-5400 DDR2-667 CL 4-4-4-12
Antec three hundred
OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS 500W
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB SATA2 8.5MS 7200RPM 16MB Cache
Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

All this for a nice 555$ after mail in rebates and shipped.

How you like it? Anything to change?

Thanks, Georgy

Excellent choices.
As long as you already have a CD or DVD drive you're good to go.
