My System Specs

Your build looks great, that E8400 imo is the right choice!!! I agree with a few comments here as well:
1. 260 (216) or even try to find a good deal for a GTX 280 (there out thier right now), with that said as Imma states the ATI Card for ~$230 is also a very good deal
2. Don't scrimp too much on the Case...something decent with good air flow, that was my mistake, now I have a Smilidon Raidmax sitting in a closet.
3. Definitely get yourself a HSF, trust me, you'll want to OC that E8400 once you see how simple it is!

Have fun!!
