Is this a good Intel based gaming computer?

Hey everyone, I wanted to build a new computer, Intel based, that could play games. First I would install Mac OS X Snow Leopard, because I use Mac for everything except gaming, then install Windows 7 Home 64-bit through boot camp, which is how I would play games. Here are the specs, I would prefer not to go any higher than I am at right now, lower for equal or better performance is fine too :)

  2. Why does it look bad to you?

    Also, the build looks like a great deal, I might have to get that instead.

    You might get a HD 6850 or HD 6870 too. It all depends on how much performance you need.

  4. Raidmax PSU, and 5900 RPM drives are bad, thats why. Plus, you could get a better build for that price.
