Yes that will kick some serious arse, great case/processor/ram/GFX
And isnt that OCZ psu modular anyway? ive the Modstream 520w version and thats modular, it makes for much neater wiring, so id never buy another normal psu with all those horrid wires everywhere! plus with the OCZ's you get all the wires seperatly in a box so you only need use the ones you want, and leave the rest in the box incase you need them later.

Monitor............. over here in the uk panasonic is a great Electrical brand, i cant see there being any issues with it........

get a 22" Chimei LCD. at MSY, they're AU$392, so they're way cheaper.

Hanns-G are some of the best monitors you can get for the price.

I've read the 9700's kinda loud. Might not be if it's in a p180 though. Btw, you could get a Dell 24" widescreen for less than that Panasonic. Other than that your build looks good.
