The parts you picked out so far, are lookin' good.

If you plan on overclocking, which you should anyway, I would suggest you get either the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro, or the Tuniq, if you plan on upgrading to a quad core later on.

You have done your research, or listened to us before

Looks good. The only thing i would suggest is get a Q6600 if you can afford it.

Is there alternative to 2900PRO, since it's no longer sold on newegg, I believe it was yesterday?

I forgot to add I'm getting Arctic Cooling Freezer 7.

I'm surprised that only came to 1500, especially with the monitor and OS included. However, I'd recommend the Q6600 instead of the E6750. It's less expensive, quad core, and can OC past that proc's stock speeds without breaking a sweat. I know, because I've done it with mine on stock cooling (2.83 GHz stable with AS5).

Other than that it looks good.

Sorry, I was getting it confused with the E6600. But it doesn't matter, the q6600 is still less than, what, 300.00? It's a better buy.
