I'd like opinions on a gaming build, so I'll just add on to this thread if that's OK.

Here's the build, I have a bit more in the budget to improve the CPU if anyone has any suggestions. The core of this build comes from mysuperpc so I am assuming there are no conflicts.

I upgraded the vid card and would not have a problem upgrading the CPU but I don't want to start causing problems with things not working well together. I'm grabbing 8g of RAM and plan on running Win7 Home Premium; would more RAM be a wise or wasteful addition?

Also, I'm not an audiophile, but would it be a good idea to grab a sound card?

It's all Amazon except for direct buy on the RAM:

Write it in English, not in Pentagonese. It's not a launcher, rifle cartridge, 7.62mm; it's a rifle. Call it a compass, not a direction-finding module. And if someone insists on being called AdcomphibsPac, the Fact File should explain to those not gifted in garblespeak that he's talking about the administrative office of the communication services for amphibious forces in the Pacific.
