Looks great!! The only thing I question is that monitor and you may want a larger case. Also, (optional) you could add another hard drive and a dvd rom.

Nice system, should play pretty much any game on medium-high specs. And if you have a system like that why do you want to know if its good?

More RAM. XP Pro is what i use, probably won't make any difference than Home for what you will do but if you have the money, go Pro or stay Home.

Also if you have a highspeed connection don't spend more for SP2, just download it.

-Yah 2gb ram if you afford it.

-I sent you some LCD links.

-Thats some pretty nice stuff you are puttin in there. The last thing you want is to be limited by space in your case. I am regretting my case choice now, cause its too small and i cant add the cpu heatsink I wanted to, plus cant add extra fans. As well, generally the smaller the case, the less air flow you have and the hotter it is. Hot is bad.
Really its your choice, as far as style. But quality is also important. I would suggest at least a 18" (height) tower or bigger.

So....., i like these, but i like a simple look cause i am old and boring:

This comes with a quality PSU and is very solid.
