This is my proposed first build. Have a look and tell me where I can improve.

Case – Antec 900

I think this is a pretty decent case. Looks pretty good as well.

PSU – Antec NeoPower 650 Blue
http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=28651
Have not spent too much time looking for a PSU, but this seems adequate.

Motherboard – Asus Striker II Formula

Decided to go for this so then in the future I can always get another graphics card. I think Asus are good as well.

CPU – Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450

Not really planning on OCing so this seems like a nice processor.

Graphics card – Asus EN8800GT TOP/G/HTDP/512M
http://uk.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=6&l3=442&l4=0&...
I heard this is a good 'bang for buck' GPU.

RAM – OCZ PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4Gb

Hard Drive – Seagate ST3320620A 320Gb

Optical Drive – Pioneer DVR-212BK

Thanks for looking!

I would love to provide some insight on what to upgrade but, in order to do so, I need to know your budget.
