You can definitly find a much cheaper Case to allow for this much better power supply

I would buy a dual core AMD processor, and instead of the case you're looking at, I'd get the Thermaltake Shark case. It's a full sized case, makes it easier to put stuff in. The rest looks pretty good.

What about sound card?
Should I go for Creative Labs?

and also what Monitor LCD 19" you would recomend. So could work good with Geforce 7800GT or Geforce 7800GTX.
Also whats defference between Geforce 7800GT and Geforce 7800GTX ?

just go with the gt and overclock, haha, the system your building is very similar to mine. only my case is somewhat retarded cuz its based on a btx tower (whatever that is) and the little connector for the power supply would be near the very bottom of the tower... which wouldnt reach with most psu's... so i gotta get that abit mobo just to get the cord to reach.. differently placed socket.. makes me sad..
