And your buying a dvd rom and burner? why not 1 just 1 drive that can read and burn save some money there too.
Yeah i agree with everything exept the 6800GT thing the 6800Gs is about 50$ cheaper than the GT. and yeah just get the Lite-on DVD-RW drive cause you dont need 2. and you can get a good 19' CRT monitor for the price of your LCD but if your trying to save just go with a good 17' CRT and 15' arent bad for games there just really small and i hate mine. And 1 last thing Keep the MSI mobo its one of the best out there at a reasonably good price. and if you can find a mobo with dual ethernet ports like a DFI lan Party you might save by dropping the 2 network cards but im not very good with networking so talk to someone else about that.
add about 120 for a good 17' CRT=1180-22(dvd-rom)=1158
