Default New build round 2

After my first round of comments i have changed a few things and would like a second round of suggestions.

NOTE: my prices are in USD since im from the US.

I want this build mostly to play high end games (crysis, fallout 3, batman AA etc...)
I do plan to do a little OC but not too much.

My System Specs

Default

I sugest to drop the wireless card for a computer tower. Especially if you want to play. If you absolutely want to have a wireless card then go with good brand, linksys is the best of them all. For the sound card there is no need exept if you have a really good set of speaker. On normal computer speaker or headphone you wont notice the difference between one and other sound.

Ask for more.

So other than that it looks good? Everything is compatable?
