Default Re: 800 dollar build feedback

All just suggestions.

Instead of Artic Silver (better thermal performance):
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING MX-2 Thermal Compound - Thermal Compound / Grease

Slightly faster than the 260 (but no rebate):
Newegg.com - XFX HD-489A-ZDFC Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Slightly slower, but cheaper:
Newegg.com - XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

$25 more, but double the cache and more than double the storage. Faster, too.
Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
