My New Dream Win7 Machine!

After months of waiting, nursing my old, dying WinXP machine, I can finally order my new Win7 PC.
Here are the specs for the new machine, let me know what you think and anything I should add or remove. BTW, I went with Win7 Ultimate so that I could get the XP virtual machine compatibility mode. Take a look and see if you have any suggestions for things to add, change and/or remove.

Sounds nice, Lil! I'm still in the research stage of buying a new machine. I just realized a couple of weeks ago that my desktop is over 8 years old! Way overdue for a new one. I'm giving some thought to buying a serious gaming rig-they look so cool!
