I may throw in a cheap soundcard as well. If anyone has any recommendations on that they are welcome.

Many thanks to everyone who has helped me in this thread! And of course, if you see any problems with the above configuration let me know.
btw get this evga 8800gts 320mb instead, it has a mir that drops the price to $260.... plus u don't have to pay to get an overclocked card when u can manually download atitool and overclock it to the more expensive card's speeds

vernong: I don't see a link in your post but I assume you mean this one:

Newegg.com - EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB 320-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card - Retail

Sure, I'll get that one instead. Overclocking it will be really easy, right?


Vaanish: I'll consider that Samsung dvd drive - the LG was really just an arbitrary decision. I went with the acer to keep the price down - plus acer makes pretty good monitors from what I've seen. I do like Samsung's screens - but I assume there's no comparable Samsung in the same price range as the acer. If you do know a good one in the same price range and with similar specs definitely let me know.

I just looked at the "Supported Memory List" (http://www.gigabyte.us/FileList/Memo...a-p35-ds3r.pdf) on Gigabyte's website for the GA-P35-DSR, and the G-Skill Ram (Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail) I was planning to purchase is not listed there. Would this pose a problem, and should I consider going with one of the brands that they have listed?

Any of the DDR2-800 line from G. Skill would have no problem with the P35-DS3R. There are already people, using them both together.

Does anyone know the difference between the memory on this page:

Newegg.com - Buy Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!)

If there is not much difference, I'll just go with the $89.99 one. Also, any feedback on this monitor would be great:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 216BW Black-Silver 21.6" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 3000:1(1000:1) - Retail
