For $10.00 more, you can upgrade your mobo and video card to pci-xpress. And if you are not over clocking you can use Corsair Value Select ram and be right back to the same price range with better stuff. Value select ram is great, just cant OC with it.

Just a suggestion. But well worth it. Cant really OC without upgrading some other things like Fans and a heatsink anyways. And yes, you need a proccesor, venice cores are great. BTW..dont know if size matters to you or not...but there is a monitor I seen in a earlier post that looked nice and was a bit cheaper (not from N.E.) but *cheaper*..lol.
