Ok, nice stuff ridlyn. What i would change.

-Get a 16mb cache Wd 250gb hard drive for like another 17$.

-Get at least a LCD with 8ms response time, not 16ms. Get a Viewsonic or Samsung, or acer has a decent 19" for $250.

Also I like the ocz modstream PSU cause it has sweet cables that will help manage inside your pc and keep things cool:

I'd have to agree with Ridlyn, those parts are very nice.
