Default Im going to build my first computer

My old dell is slowing down and its getting hard to play the new flight sim X so i have decided to make a gaming desktop. I only have about $1,200 to spend so im keeping some things at the low end until i can get more money together.

It will be some time to save up before i can get parts ordered but when i do ill have a nice setup.

heres the buy list:

Processor:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz - $225

Graphics Card:
XFX GeForce 7900 GS Video Card - $185 (get this first)
------------------------------------------------------------
GeForce 8800 GTS - $430
(newegg item #: N82E16814121034)

RAM:
GeIL Ultra 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM - $220

PSU (Power supply):
FSP600-80GLC ATX12V/ EPS12V 600W - $114

Hard drive:
Seagate 7200.10 320Gb - $95

DVD-RW Drive:
LiteOn 16x DL - $40

Mother board:
DFI Infinity 975X - $165

Fans
2 - Antec 77095 120mm Blue LED Case Fan - $26

Case:
Silverstone TJ04

computer board member:
"I suggest Antec fans. Not tricool, just normal fans. At any given RPM, they are quieter than the stock fan in my OCZ PSU, the evercool fans I have, and the thermaltake fans I have.. they really are amazing fans."

newegg didn't have any normal ones so I got two blue lighted ones in 120mm for the case.

At first I'll be using the XFX GeForce 7900 GS graphics card but after I get some more money together ill be getting a 20" LCD monitor and the GeForce 8800 GTS.
