I went over by $50.

But that system will do you good. I was surprized by how much room I had with just a $1000, this will run all the new games incredibly fast, and future games too since its dual core.

Oh, and keep in mind that in a few days when Conroe finally comes out, AMD's prices will drop too.

Yeah, you should save at least a $100 on the 3800+. My suggestion would be to put it toward a better PSU like Antec TruePower 550W. Everything else the General said I agree with.

Yeah, I'd say. MSI, eVGA, AMD, Corsair, Seagate its all major brand names, the only shadey one is BenQ for the DVD-burner, but I've just never used one before. I have that case, and the PSU that comes with it is good enough for that setup. I had to upgrade because I have 4 harddrives.
