    I'd say stay away from nV 7xxi chipsets for mobos(overly hot, and not the best performers), but for that price, that's hard to say no to.

    For gaming, unless you're running like 1024x768/1280x1024, I think that gpu may be a bit slow.

    Also, if you are going to install the latest games, you will need at least a DVD reader. Games usually don't come on standard CDs anymore. If the "CD Player" that you mentioned is actually a DVD-ROM drive or a burner, you should be fine.

    You need RAM for that setup (DDR2 probably).
