Talking What should I do

I have been planning my new build for quite a while now... Since the 8 series of nvidia GPU's have come out I have wanted one in my new build.

My budget is $3000 and here it is

Cpu: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 2.4 Ghz, 4 Mb L2 Cache, 1066 Mhz Fsb - $504
Mobo: Asus P5NSLI, 2x Pci-E x16, DDR2, Sata II - $198
Grahics: Palit Geforce 8800GTX 769Mb DDR3, 384 Bit - $1014
HDD: Western Digita Caviar 320 Gb, Sata II, 7,200 Rpm - $168
Ram: Corsair 2Gb (2x 1Gb) DDR2 800/ Pc 6400, 5-5-5-12 - $496
Case: Thermaltake Armor VA8430BWSA, With 430 Watt Psu - $260
Psu: Silverstone ST60F 600 Watt Psu, Sli Ready - $227
Monitor: BenQ FP91G+ 19" 8MS LCD Monitor - $399

Total $3266

I need to keep it under $3000 so what should I downgrade. I would like to keep the CPU and the same amount of DDR2 800 ram. Im not quite sure about the mobo and HDD. Maybe you could recomend some good parts from this website.

that alone will keep you under budget and you get to keep all your other parts...
