I really dont like that case and you can get a really sweet one for a lower price. You have awsome hardware and dont want it displayed in a bad case.

Do you need a window?

go for the X2 3800+ as dual core is the way, and its around the same price...

wheres your power supply?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103933

dont get the ones that come with your case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148063

seagate barracuda 400GB hdd, though

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148066

getting two of those and putting them in raid 0 would be cheaper and more efficient

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130254

if the GTX can fit into your budget then get it

the Gt has 20 pipelines and 400/1000 speeds

GTX has 24 pipelines and 450/1200 speeds i believe

go for windows xp pro

Yeah get the amd x2 3800+.

You can find a 7800GT easily for ~320$

Case - Don't get the Dragon, get the armor. Also get the psu linked above (antec)

Soundcard - Dependant on how much you want to spend, you could get a(n):
Soundblaster Live!, but doesn't have anywhere near as good of quality as the Audigy2 or X-Fi
Audigy2 ZS vanilla for 60$ after rebates
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102162

Or if you want a crazy good card, the X-Fi for 120$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102162

Monitor -
Again depends on your budget. This is a very good 19" lcd
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116355
but it's 350$.

If you don't want that one, look for one with fairly low response times and can go to fairly high resolutions and such
