Case? Monitor? Speaker system/headset? Sound card?

You could save money on those...

i'd go with a different CPU cooler.

my Tuniq is alright. but the fan is louder than all my case fans. my case is dead silent w/o the tuniq running. and when it does run its LOUD.

you could run a p5k or ds3l to cut your board price.

do you really need a 5.1 surround, sound card, and a 22" monitor?
