Case - Coolermaster CAC-T05 Centurion 5
CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo E6320 (Or similiarily priced CPU after the price cut)
Mouse - Logitech MX518
Memory - Mushkin SP PC2-6400
Monitor - Acer AL2051W
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA-965P-S3
Optical - Samsung SH-203B
PSU - Corsair HX520
Sound - Chaintech AV-710
Speaker - Edifier S2.1D

Probably just use my current Hard Drives, and I'll stay with a 7950 until November when the G92 supposedly will be introduced.

Will this work? Any suggestions or comments?

I'd go with LiteOn for the optical drive. Make sure it's SATA, tends to be $1-$2 different, but current boards have only 1 IDE channel. No reason to slow things down either.

Motherboard-wise I'd go with a P35-based board over the 965 from a longevity standpoint.

Otherwise looks fine for a budget build.
