Looks great, that system will own. It will be a great performer in all current games and even games to come.

Kinda hefty on the pricetag. Until today I forgot I had to buy the monitor that added.

Almost enough to make me not do it.

Thanks.

Well, believe me, that system is worth it. With that processor combined with your RAM and 6800GT, you will be able to cut through all games with max settings and AA and AF and not notice a bit of slowdown.

Do you think I would be ok with the changing the video card to a regular 6800 at 128mb? It knocks more that $100 off the price...

memory wont bring significant performance leap, though check the processor, as if its same for both Graphic cards, then its OK. go for 128MB

Don't listen to the above guy. The 6800NU 128MB is not comparable to the 6800GT in performance. I believe the NU has 12 pipes or something like that, making it comparable to the X800 Pro. Stay with the 6800GT, its well worth it.

i have mentioned the Processor of graphic card as well, so in GT and NU they are different, but GT on 128MB and 256MB wont make any big difference.

I will though now recommend ATi X800 XT with CCC, they have spent time developing their drivres on .NET, stability and performance. (2 weeks back i wasnt recommending ATi's)
