Default Updated Gaming Build

I will post my (predicted) updated gaming build shortly, while I'm assembling it, can you tell me what you would get for an e6600 and 8800GTS build?

600 or 700w PSU?
19" or 20" (20.1") monitor (widescreen or standard)?
Case choice (mainly for the temperature maintenance)?

This is going to run me about $2,000 and I still have not factored in tax.

I'm missing a monitor, still debating what to get. Is there anything else that would be vital to this build that I have not included (minus keyboard and mouse)?

Also, is there anything you would change or tweak to improve this? Within reason, of course.

Yeah I like what I'm getting for that money as well, builds like this on some websites run closer to $3,000.

I'm still bent on my monitor, I found a few that I liked, but there is no single choice that sticks out for me. Also, I am debating upgrading the mobo to one of the new ones...

I was aiming for 5ms or lower.

I think I'm going to be having a good month so maybe I'll just go for it.
