Hi guys! I'm long overdue for a system upgrade and would like to run it by some of you. This will be used mostly for MMORPG type games so ultra high frame rates aren't the last word but I would like to turn the graphics setting up from 'minimum' for a change. Drives from old system (PATA & SATA) will be re-used. System should be able to handle mild over clocking. I would also like to stay around the $500-550 range.

Motherboard is a ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI

I will be running the single video card but would like the option of adding another as a future upgrade path. Does anything look out of place, not up to the task, or too much for the rest of the system?

Thanks for any input!
