not sure if ill b able to afford it but i culd always og for a ceaper PSU and ram. if i really need to save money then ill get a 3500+ instead of the 4000+. btw, can any1 recommend a monitor. i dont want to spend a ****load but id like a nice monitor. if it's a CRT then id like it to hav a recommended res of 1600x1200 but if it's an LCD then 1200x1080 will be fine. how's this look tho?

I'd go with the Radeon 9800 Pro All-In-Wonder. Has a TV tuner built in also. It's about $209 on newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102297

:amazed: I thought you didn't want to spen a sh!tload on your monitor? Well I would consider that to be alot anyway. Its close to 1/4 of your total budget. You can get a CRT with recommended res. of 1600x1200 for half the price of that LCD.
