I take it you're building this yourself? Its a nice, upper mid-range setup and should serve you nicely. I note your motherboard has a $177 price next to it...I hope that's not what you're paying for it as NEWEGG has it for $79. Also, don't be so indifferent to your PSU choice. Make sure your PSU matches the requirements of your graphics card, and buy a good one. Corsair makes a selection of solid performers that also carry the 80+ efficiency label. Go to this link to see some of them: Good luck on the build.

O thanks, yea im building this myself, the $177 is AUD and its just a approximation. Anyway, is my graphic card good? its 512mb, I don quite understand what measures it quality, but i saw some graphic card with description 1Gig. Are they way better than the 512mb one?

Its a quality card and should serve you well running just about anything you want to do including games at high resolutions. A lot depends on your monitor of course, having a quality card doesn't mean much if you've scrimped on the monitor. What do you plan to use?
