Change the hard drive to a WD 640GB and maybe the E8400 to the E8500 (if their prices are as close as they are here in the US) and I'd give it two thumbs up.

Get the WD 640AAKS or the WD 6401AALS.
Also if your going to get a crossfire mobo you might just want to get an ATI card like the 4870 1GB.

4870 and E8500 were my first choices, but they just tip the scale on my budget. The HD change sounds good.

Thanks for the replys so far.

-- 4870 - The supplier my company uses only had a 2GB version, it made it a little to expensive :(  --

These benmarks show the GTX260 doing better than the 4870.

Although the setup with the crossfire looks good
