You might want to go for a larger monitor, developing really takes up a lot of screen real-estate and having a large resolution on an equally large monitor would makes things easier for you.

Thats way too much. Your getting ripped off. Now obviously you cant buy from NewEgg.com because your not in the US but this will give you an idea of what parts to get anyway and someone else may be able to help you find a good place to get them from.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-MA770-UD3 AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards - $75

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Black Edition Processor - Processors - Desktops - $230

Newegg.com - OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory - $65

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives - $70

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N884-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ Superclocked Edition 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards - $160

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases - $60

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W Continuous @ 40C EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies - $99

Newegg.com - LG Black 22X (CAV) DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X (CAV) DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVDR DVD Burner with LightScribe - CD / DVD Burners - $24

= $783

Now, my reasoning.

Motherboard: Cheap, known to be stable with Phenom II's. Rock Solid.
CPU: High Overclocker, fast even without overclocking in anyones eyes.
RAM: Reapers are always great to work with. Timings are good and price is right.
HDD: WD, large size, reliable.
Video: I could have gone with the cheaper 4850 and gotten the same gaming performance, but it doesnt look like you are a hard core gamer (even though this pc can definitely do it) so the 9800GTX+ will help you out with CUDA. I went with the superclocked edition because the price difference was so very minimal.
CSE: Could have gone cheaper, but you have some quality parts, and thus you need quality cooling.
PSU: Cant beat PCPower and Cooling and 600W+ will allow you to do some major upgrading in the future.
OPT: I always go LG for dvd burners. Theyre just great.

Yeah, it's quite a good monitor for the price - 22" and 1080p monitors are usually pretty good.

Thanks man...I wanted to Intel so selected this spec...with the info you have given I think I could have a far better rig for the money I am paying.However If were to go with only Intel Pro. and mobo, do you think my spec is OK?
