One thing i see is the PSU, If your gonna be running SLI I would recommend something a little better. And since your spending all this money i would recommend you spend some cash on a PSU or your investment is gonna be a nice paper weight.

Other than that it looks good

ok, sweet computer, sorta like mine, for the video card, go with evga, they are better. great processor and mobo.

consider Mushkin or OCZ for ram and get 2 gig if you can cuz money is apparently not an issue.

great sound card, definitely stick with it. same with the hard drive, nice choice there

BUT change the power supply, get a PC Power and Coolong 510 watt supply, none better cept for their 850 watt version

and get a DVD writer, they are only $50

as for case, look at a thermaltake soprano, rock solid case with 5 fans i believe...

oh yeah, wuts your monitor and speakers

Everything looks sweet. Make sure you get 2 gigs RAM. Power supply i recommend PC Power and Cooling. For a case maby the Aspire X-Navigator. (Any one of them, pick your color)

it looks like your going to be gaming, but the fx series is going to be in the dust. i would recommend a X2 processor. most games will support dual core in the future. so you might want to future proof your comp so you wont have to buy one in a year or two. but it looks like you have the money. so if you want shell out how ever much your speending each year its fine with me. but if it were me i would go with an X2. and an SLI ready psu. OCZ powerstream
