Default pc build

hello, I'm looking to build a pc that will be mostly used for gaming, i have bought some parts and need some advice on what else to buy.

Here's what i've bought

Asus P5K Deluxe
Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme
NZXT Lexa Blackline
Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit


btw...my budget is around $1700 - $1800 for the rest of the parts...including mouse, keyboard...etc.

(also i dont mind buying from different sites ^_^ ...also I'm looking for a video card better than a 8800 gts and a 22 inch monitor is preferred but if it costs too much it's not necessary...)

I saw this same post in other threads. Would this be considered SPAM? Unsolicited email? Especially in bulk?
