Yea as for vid card, stick with the 7800GT, but go with eVGA, most people agree they are the best. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130256
Other than that, everything else looks great. Have fun with your new build

The two eVGA that everyone recommends are sold out at the moment because of neweggs price drop last week or whenever it was. I was going to buy one tonight too *sigh*.

Darn. Well it's up to you. I would order all the other parts then get the graphics card last, when newegg gets it back in stock.
