looks pretty good, though I believe the ti4200 doesn't get any performance increase out of 8x AGP--8x agp is a gimmick like Parallel ATA-133 as of now. if you feel that computer is fast enough then go on ahead, but might i recommend CL2.0 ram and a different CD-RW, like LiteOn or Plextor persay. are you going to get Serial ATA or Parallel ATA drives

Check for a CDR/RW with Mt Rainer support - next version of windows will support this, it will allow direct writing to the drive without a third party software packet writing
