Another Core 2 Duo Thread...

Here is the spec sheet I have right now. Penny for your thoughts?

Antec P180 Case with Nexus fans undervolted to reduce noise
Antec Phantom 500W Power Supply
Asus P5W DH Deluxe Wi-Fi Mobo
Intel E6600 CPU
CPU Heatsink/Fan - ???
Corsair MXS2 DDR2 800 Twin2x2048 - 6400C4 RAM
Gigabyte GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-Bit GDDR3 Silent Pipe II Video Card
Two 36.7GB WD Raptor Drives (1 for OS/Software, 1 for CS2 scratch)
One WD Caviar RE2 YS 500GB SATAII Drive for data
One Seagate ST3500601XS-RK 500GB eSATA external drive for data backup
Windows XP Pro SP2
Optical drives/sound card from current computer
Monitor/Keyboard/Mouse/Speakers from current computer

The only thinkg I have left to decide on is CPU cooling. I'd like to go passive to eliminate another fan, but not sure if temps will stay under control.

I'm going for quiet and stable and something I can use for the next 3-5 years comfortably. I'm starting with 2GB of RAM for now... may go to more later if needed.

Your thoughts?
