Not to mention that I'm pretty proud that I built this myself with no experience whatsoever, but my brother-in-law did the software setup for me.
A list of what I got now
Seasonic power supply 500w
Saphire Radeon HD video card 575MHZ 512MB
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 processor
Asus P5Q pro mother board
OCZ Gold XTC PC2-6400 4GB
Hitachi Deskstar 500 GB hard drive
a little over $1000 with tax with the LG DVD writer, Antec 300 tower case and XP pro OS. Very happy with it!
if your computer is for work and for documents that sounds fine, but i was thinking you might want to upgrade your PSU if you're upgrading the videocard to something else. dual core, custom heatsinks, and big fan crossfire or SLI videocards suck up the juice pretty fast.
it looks like you have a stable mobo and good setup there, that's a great buy from NCIX.
