  1. It's not that great.

    First, you've got a tiny case. That'll hamper the air flow, which is extrememly important for that GPU, as it puts off a lot of heat.

    Second, you're got a really poor quality PSU. Make sure to get a quality one from Corsair, Antec, Silverstone or SeaSonic. Or if your budget is really tight, OCZ.

    Third, that board isn't that great. I'd get an Asus P7P55D-E Pro.

    Fourth, it'd be better to get a kit of two 2 GB sticks of RAM. You should also be looking for either 1333 mhz CL 7 or 1600 mhz CL 7.

    Fifth, the new GTX 4xx cards aren't worth the money. I'd highly recommend spending a little more and getting an HD 5850.

    Finally, sound cards are basically worthless. Onboard sound is excellent and free. Try it out first. If you can tell a difference, add the card later.
