The monitor you chose doesn't have DVI, i don't think. Go with the Samsung 940B.

Will the 17" be much of a increase in gaming over the 19", its not striclty a gaming computer, and like i said i will use it for photoshop, and multitasking on the web and playing poker with multiple windows. The 17" you chose is about the same price as the 19" i was going to get and its 8ms, which i heard shouldn't have a problem with ghosting.

Also ive heard that the OCZ Gold Edition isn't compatible with the DFI Lanparty nF4 Ultra-D. Can anyone verify this?

yes it will be much of a increase unless you are rich and can afford a new top of the line graphics card every time a new ones out. cuz if you play games at 1024x1280, 19" looks horrible.

Are you kidding me? Most gamers have 19" monitors. God, where are you getting this crap. Besides, he'll be playing on 1280x1024, and he has a 7800GT so there...

I have a 6600GT and I run at 1280x1024. You don't need the highest one. I also have a 17" LCD and 1024x786 looks just fine on it. Response time slows down, but its still very playable.

Well i think im pretty much done to buy all the parts for my build. With everything i need except for a case i am at $1,871 using newegg and zip zoom. I have room to buy a nice case, and a couple nice fans.

Im going with the 19" Samsung 940b monitor, and the ocz gold ddr500. Oh and ive also dropped down to a Opteron 165, to put money elsewhere.

What is your guys opinion on the best case for $150ish down?

i don't know about 150 down, but if its 100 down it would have to be the cooler master centurion 5. its a good case IMO.

samsung 940b? u sure? i really suggest the viewsonic, but its your choice.
