Default $700 Build w/ Monitor (Please Critique)

My first build! Please check compatibility with PSU and what-not. I think I pretty much got it, but I don't want to get it all ordered just to realize the parts don't work together. This is a COMPLETE build. Please tell me if I missed something. Thanks.



Here is the Newegg Wishlist URL: Wish list details

Little change: Newegg.com - ABIT IP35-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
But for 700, that's a mighty great build.

Little advice- for the monitor, find a best buy nearest to you and stand outside it the night before black friday. You can get a 22" samsung LCD for almost the price of that 19".

Thanks for the feedback but also will the psu work with the rest of the parts? My knowledge on PSU's are a little fuzzy.

I would suggest this power supply instead, as it provides more amps, providing a more stable power source:
Newegg.com - FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN ATX12V 400W Power Supply 120/220 - 240v NEMKO, TUV, CSA, IEC, UL, CE - Retail

Ok, but it has less watts. But I did hear something that stated "Watt don't mean Squat" so I'll add it.

Yes, it's been said literally hundreds of times. Watts do mean a little squat, but the amps on the +12v rails, make the difference.
