Yeah. It'll be a while waiting...but it's worth it.

PSU? I can probably spend up to $150 on one, but I'm currently looking at this.

That monitor is too expensive man.

This monitor OWNS that one for about $100 less.

Yeah, but I'm getting the VX2025 (widescreen 20.1").
That PSU looks real nice. Hello Hiper, bye bye Enermax.

As for an Anti-Virus program, any suggestions? I've got PC-Cillin 2005 that I haven't opened and that the viruses on this computer prevent me from installing XD, but I've heard that NOD32 is an awesome (and cheap) AV app.

NOD32 or Kaspersky i have used kaspersky it is very good and if you want a $27 firewall that is insane get Outpost Pro and dont forget Spyware Blaster

So, as I take it, NOD32 deals with viruses, Outpost Pro protects internet browsing, and Spyware Blaster destroys existing spyware. Cool.

I really dont think youll have any trouble building a very nice PC for 2000. Especially when conroe comes and sweeps the prices down, similar to those walmart comercials, Conroe will be the smiley face whipping down prices. And from what ive seen, Conroes wont even be that huge of a stretch at all for 2 grand.
