Some things missing:

floppy drive
flash card reader
monitor
soundblaster (?)
speaker/surround set
keyboard
mouse

1. Check noise levels of fans.

2. Harddisk will probably be full within two years ofcourse you can add a
new one later on ;)

3. The case seems to have nice airflow, straight from the front to the back,
that's nice.

4. The processor is pretty high end compared to the rest of the system which
is more medium.

5. Onboard audio chip might give troubles with high quality sound settings
in games.

6. The GT version might be noisier than the GTX version.

Advanced tip:

6. You might wanna look into special cpu coolers for better cooling and less
noise.

Bye,
Skybuck.
