That's a long way away, maybe if you're lucky the prices will go down on some of the stuff you're buying. What monitor were you thinking of buying?

totally get a soundcard. i have the x-fi right now. makes my crappy speakers sound so much better. of course you won't know what your missing unless you've ever used one. IMO you should split your extra 400 dollars on 100 on speakers, get the audigy2ZS. a good card. which is around 70. and that leaves you 230 on a monitor.
