My budget isn't so tight that I can't put 25 extra dollars or so towards something.
I also decided to pick up a 7900GS right now instead of an 8800GTS, and possibly step up in a few months. Is DX10 something I need now? The 7900gs shouldn't have a problem with a 22" widescreen lcd right?
I'm waiting until the end of april/start of may before purchasing my cpu. So we'll see how the prices are and such then.
Also, are there any miscellaneous parts that I might be forgetting? I suppose I'll need an anti-static strap.
Major things left to get on my list are the gfx card( evga 7900gs ), monitor( benq 22" lcd - also going to be used with my ps3), HSF( artic cooling 7?), ram( 2gb g.skill ), cpu( c2d..), mb( p5b-e ), and a drive or drives for the os.
I was also thinking about picking up an icydock
and a temp monitor/fan controller.. like a thermaltake hardcano 12-se
but can't seem to find it in stock anywhere.
