i would advise you to stat away from the tsunami case. it has many flaws... go for a coolermaster case or a lan-li case. but that is a good build.

good setup, only thing i would say upgrade to is the XMS memory. if u have the x2 4400, go with the XMS memory. it'll oc so much better than the value memory.

as for the monitor, my buddy has that same model and it looks great. if ur gaming (which almost seems obvious), ull be happy.

If you upgrade your RAM, then go with OCZ or G.skill over XMS
