Default How does this new build look (Novice)

Need some help for new build --- it would be used for some gaming COD4 online and looking to try out Crysis. Also for slideshow production using ProShow Producer as software. My gaming is limited as i have 2 new kiddies but I have never used my PC interms of eyecandy as i have a HP P4 2.4 with a Radeon x1650 pro agp. I play COD4 @ 600x800. Anyhow my budget is around $1000 and i'd be buying Canadian I've been looking at NCIX for prices using price match and so on also i 've been reading reviews and persons opinions on products. Initially i was going with about a Intel e5200 cpu and GEFORCE 9800GT andwork off that as i researched around my plans changed. So here is what i have gone with but open to suggestions please. Very new to this as i hae only really installed graphic cards and ram in the past for upgrades to exsisting PC.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
EVGA E-GEFORCE GTX 260 Core 216 SC 55NM 626MHZ 896MB 2.1GHZ
Coolermaster CM 690 Case
G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK PC2-8500 4GB 2X2GB DDR2-1066
Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB 7200RPM 32MB Dual Proc

I priced at NCIX with price match and free shipping at about $930

I have all other items needed mouse keyboard ect. and i'd be using XP for OS
