I would get the non-SLI DFI motherboard if you want to save a little money, unless you are planning to have two video cards.
The power supply isn't that good.
Also I don't like cordless mice/keyboard but htat's preference.
Could use a little bit better of ram, corsair xms series if you can afford it.

Overall pretty good and balanced.

Im against them and i say the SLI is worth it for the future, when you want to spend another 400$ or less on the PC.

Great system

Besides putting a volcano 12 on their I wouldnt change much

I would build my own case or get a full size tower.
I would probolly get a diff PSU (personal opinion)

Great system

possible better ram if you save a bit of money you could downgrade to a 15 inch lcd wich is still pretty big compared to a 15 inch crt or you could get a 19 inch crt for about the same price.

do not get a 15" lcd, they suck, the resolution is tiny. i got my monitor for $250, now it's even cheaper.
