I'm open to opinions and recommendations. Just tell me what you think and it I can make it better in any way.
My budget is 2500, give or take 100 or so.
I mainly play FPS's and RPG's. The first couple games on my list to buy are Borderlands and Dragon Age: Origins. I'm not much of an MMO guy, but will most likely play Star Wars The Old Republic once comes out.
The monitor I plan to buy is...

This will be my first computer build. I've got a pretty high budget and want to get the best I can with it, but I understand there is a point in which you've gone overboard. So tell me if I have. I've researched a lot of stuff, but am still new to this. I'm open to criticism and recommendations. Thanks for your help.
