Fairly cheap? It's like $350+ at NCIX.com, which he stated he was buying from. I would suggest probably, an Acer 20" or 22" 5ms. They're not expensive at NCIX.com

NCIX.com - Buy Samsung SyncMaster 226BW 22IN Widescreen LCD Monitor Black 1680X1050 3000:1 2MS VGA DVI-D HDCP - LS22MEWSFV/XAA In Canada.

Do you mean this?

And for the price range, I was looking for a cheaper, under $250, I can downgrade to a 20in if it's worth losing the 2 inches, it's not a big loss.

NCIX.com - Buy Acer AL2216WBD 22IN Widescreen LCD Monitor Black 1680X1050 700:1 5MS VGA DVI-D Monitor - ET.2216B.0D0 In Canada.

Is what i was looking at, and i found it cheaper at Canada computers, so i would do a price match down to 264.99, I'm sorry what i meant was around $250, and allot under $350 because $350 is way too much for me.

Thanks for your help b1gapl and xXSN1P3RXx.

Edit:

NCIX.com - Buy Acer AL2016WBSD 20IN Widescreen LCD Monitor Silver 1680X1050 800:1 5MS VGA DVI-D Monitor - ET.D16WP.B03 In Canada.

Is another, Those were the two I was looking between a little while ago. And canada computers has it for $199.99.

Corsair PSU; the Xclio GoodPower 500W or GreatPower 550W would be better for the price that Corsair 450W is at. Better performance as well.

EVGA 8800GTS 640MB; not needed. Get the 320MB, 1% performance increase isn't worth the extra $40-$50. With that extra money, you can spend it on something else.

Crucial Ballistix Tracer; no need for the LED's. Just get the regular ones. Crucial Ballistix DDR2 800.

Everything else looks fine, but for your Q6600; you should get the Tuniq Tower 120 along with a tube of AS5, MX-1, or MX-2.
