^ Haha Hikari got pwnd.

And yeah, good choices if you go with the Platinums (Am i credited as the first person to suggest these? I dont remember), and 32mb blacks.
Also change to the Sunbeam as hikari said, usually i would reccomend the xiggies (S1283) instead but it means you wont have to buy MX-2 or TX-2 and the core contact edges out no matter who reviews them.

I would change the gpu to a HD 4890 which has similar performance to the GTX 275 but is cheaper and overclocks better.

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100269SR Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

At 37" you do NOT need 120hz. It's hard to differentiate the difference even until 42 and above. At 37" you really won't. I'm not 100% sure if they even make a 37 120hz. I know we don't carry it.

Also remember a HDTV may not be the best for gaming (im assuming you want it to game...). The response time might be awful in comparison to monitors.

response time is = to refresh rate. Typically 60hz refresh rate is a 6 ms response time.

IMO, getting a TV for your computer isn't worth it. They have much lower PPI (Pixels per inch) and a lower resolution overall. I would grab a 26" monitor to game on. It will have a slightly higher res. and much more PPI than any lcd tv you get. If you are using this build as a media center just so you can watch some HD movies and have lots of storage, then you are spending about $600 too much lol. I am assuming that you want to game on this though so I would recommend you take my suggestion of getting a monitor.
