AMD Phenom II X4 955
Samsung Spinpoint F3
Corsair Dominator 4GB(2x2GB) 1600
Corsair TX650
Scythe S-FLEX SFF21E 120mm Case Fan (QTY 5)
Tuniq Tower 120
ASUS VW224U Black 22"
LG DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model GH24NS50 - OEM

I had originally ordered some G.Skill memory, but read up and found out that it wasn't too friendly with that particular Asus Mobo. So I bit the bullet and got the Dominator sticks.

What do you think? I know there isn't a GPU(other than onboard), I don't really game, and if I choose to, I will add a card later, just wanted to get this system up and running.

Looks like a nice well-balanced build.

Thanks, I'm hoping it does everything I need it do -- and will last me atleast a couple of years. One thing I think is most important is protecting your vital components, so I'm hoping the array of cooling will help out significantly.

Would it be worth it to upgrade to an add-on Radeon if I have no interest in gaming? Will I see any benefit elsewhere?

Looks great, though i would've got the Gamma case instead as it looks better IMO, Good luck!

True, I'm more of a function over form type of guy. Plus, I was trying to rack up as many mail in rebate's and free shipping offers as possible. :bounce:

Its only 6 bucks more LOL.. At least you get a free LED fan :D 

Not to sound like a frugal idiot, but 6 bucks is 6 bucks lol. And it looks fine IMO, and that's the opinion that matters haha :lol:
