Haven't ordered everything yet... This is what I have slated. It's already cut down somewhat from what I had originally in mind.

MSI K9VGM-V: $51.99
EVGA 7600GS 256mb: $91.99
Athlon64 x2 5200+ : 239.00
G.Skill 2gb (2x1gb) pc4200: $139.99
Seagate 320gb 7200rpm: $99.99
NEC 19" 4ms LCD: $279.99
Lite-On cd/dvd rw: $31.99
Vista Business: $149.99
MSI Turbo G Wireless card: $17.99
Antec LifeStyle SONATA II w/ 450watt psu: $99.99
Logitech Cordless Mouse/Keyboard: $29.99

TOTAL: $1232.90

I'd like to get it under $1000 if possible, but since it needs to handle Vista as well as engineering design apps like autocad on a 24/7 basis, I'm not sure if going with cheaper components would be the right thing to do. Any ideas to get the cost down is appreciated, but keep in mind it needs to be 100% reliable.
