Me, Smile

Okay. New Computer time.

http://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion/wishlist/PublicWishDetail.asp?WishListNumber=4254765 has all the details. I would like last quick opinions before I go ahead and order; after the latest round of price cuts with nVidia and Intel it seems really an optimal time to get this machine. I've got some room to spend a little more, but not much. I don't need a super-gaming-oomph machine, but would like good bang for the buck.

EDIT: Ordered! woodlander encouraged me to a slightly better power supply I was debating anyway, and there was also a $5 promo code for the RAM.
