The only question marks I have are:
400W PSU may be bare minimum for those components. If you only have one optical drive and limit the number of USB devices, it may be OK but better to go for something juicier.
Only 2GB RAM?

PC Build

the 400W power supply thing, I agree with you but i only have 1 HD and a CD/DVD drive and thats it. And 2G of ram is good enough to run vista, Vista can only handle 3G-4G after thats, its pointless.

Could it run Crysis and the newest games tho?

Hi Marux,

Yes, the frame rate in Crysis would be around 40-50fps.
Although, more RAM would be a nice idea.
