well if your just using it for HOME use you might as well just go for HOME edition. most of use here have home. unless we used/using the computer for college which you need pro obviously. or some people just like pro better then home. it really doesnt matter which one you go for.

Hmm that site looks pretty good, and easier to use than monarchcomputers. Switch that mboard to the msi neo4 plat or dfi lanparty ultra. Check the build costs and shipping and warranty. Not sure about that psu....

I have to agree. I don't really like the case and especially the power supply. You got some decent hardware, you don't want a bad PSU ruin it. I'm going to suggest an OCZ powerstream PSU, I think it's good and the price is resonable. For the case I suggest a lian li pc 65. I think that'll still come out to be less than 1700. Give it a thought.
