Hey everyone, I am about to build a new computer and I think i finally picked all the parts for my computer. How does this build look?

Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3L
Intel E5200
G.Skill 4gb 240pin DDR2 800 (PC6400) Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ
Sapphire 100245L Radeon HD 4850 512 MB
Arctic cooling freezer 7 pro
Corsair CMPsu-650TX 650 W

I've already purchased my Antec 300 case, and I plan to use my old IDE hard drive and dvd drive.
Everything adds up to be about $550 including shipping and the case, but excluding a total of $60 in rebates.

Thanks for any input! I will probably put in the order a few hours from now.

Looks pretty solid and for the amount of money being spent it will be cost effective to upgrade down the road

thanks. That's what i was thinking about. Maybe a few years from now, i will upgrade to quad core, with better ram, and better hard drive.

Looks good. Only thing I would change is HSF. Get a XIGMATEK S1283 + bolt in kit if possible.

Not Bad, looks like a solid build.
