Default OK, final build list, sokay?

So, I am sure NCIX burnaby hates me now, but I changed just about everything and came up with this, to be built after xmas.

The purpose is for me to have a PC my wife won't be so pissed about me breaking from o/c shenanigans, an HTPC for mild use (no cable/pvr, just playback) and as a media server. Here goes:

CPU: e2180
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-P35p DS3L (my 2nd)
RAM: Crucial Ballistix 8500
CPU cooler: AC Freezer 7 pro
NB cooler: Thermalright HR-05-SLI
SB cooler: stock
HDD cooler: Kingwin ICY
Case: Antec 900 (it was 49 bux, hard to complain)
PS: Antec Smartpower 2.0 500w
GPU: 800XL (maybe 3870?)

I am hoping to get this rig above the performance of the one in my sig, which will stay stock (or close) for reliability reasons.

critiques?
