I dont have a flat pannel monitor but i think an 8ms or better response time is more preferable.

I think most motherboards these days come with an ethernet port already.

AMD 3000+
2gb RAM
X800 PCI-e
80gb + 250gb WD HDDs
X-FI Xtreme Music

Yeah, the 8ms is better but my budget got tight after the vid card, mobo, cpu, ram, and monitor

Thanks about the tip on the mobo ethernet port... I guess I overlooked it.
