Only 2 pcs? or will there be ethernet modems and print servers and other pc's? If there is just 2 PC's you get crossover cable and connect the 2 directly. If you have more than 2, you get a network switch, personally i have a 5 port switch which lets me plug in up to 5 computers or devices.

hmm, one thing you have there is a really expensive mouse and keyboard. Try and look for a cheaper one, id pay maximum $30 for a mouse, $50 for a keyboard. Also, you can get 19in CRT monitors from i-tech with fairly good prices. Heres one for $249:

I hate LCD's, they are really expensive and the image quality isnt as good as CRT's. Only get a LCD is space is a severe problem, and usually it isnt. I live in a very small apartment, with a mediocre sized desk and the only thing stopping me getting a 19in is the money. One last thing, you typed a athlon 64 3800+, when you really mean a 3500+ (the 3800+ is over $800)
