Update:

Replaced the 4850 with the 4870. Replace the Biostar with the Asus PK5 Pro (Crossfire ready, in case I want to add another 4870 in the future) Also replaced the PSU with the 750tx.

(wow, it's been forever guys... lol! ^^!)

I love the build, (especially the nice 3.0 ghz).
Personally i would have went with a Nvidia 9800 gtx
I don't care much for ati primarily because i prefer Nvidia with it's:
efficient control panel uses.
the capability of using Digital Vibrance.
and the beauty of it all together
i just love it, i stuck with them for years, never had a problem. regardless, ATI i'm sure is pretty good, their doing well on the market, it's just a personal thing i think.

Do you really want a monitor with built in speakers? If no, I would suggest this Acer monitor:

Newegg.com - Acer X193W+BD Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 (ACM) - LCD Monitors

It supports higher resolution for it's size which is a plus. I ordered a similar one, but the 22" version for $40 more on Newegg. It's a pretty good quality monitor for the price with DVI input too!!

I have the same case and I must say it is roomy, but on the other hand you need to make sure your sata cables and all will reach. Case is also awkward working on because it isnt flat on sides. Easiest thing ive found is to just lay it on my bed lol. That case is a beast, and if you are going to do any lan parties, make sure to have it at your house so you dont have to lug it around
