Does that looks like a well balanced comp ? I'd like some feedback =).
edit: replaced Antec Nine Hundred for Antec Three Hundred.
edit2: replaced the HD 4850 for a 4870, thanks to the cheaper case.
edit3: replaced the Seagate 500GB hard drive for WD 640GB.
Looks pretty good to me for the $. I'd probably get a different PSU, but that one has a $30 MIR, so it'll be hard to beat at that price range for you. I'd also go with the WD AAKS 640 gb HD too. I'm also going to ASSUME that your using a 64 bit OS to take advantage of all of your 4 gb's of RAM??
