Default What do you think?

Okay I edited it, I wanted to stay under 3500 USD but this isn't too much over, and it has a very nice (or so it seems) monitor, a better power supply, and Microsoft works 7.0, for just slightly above the price of the previous one I posted.

Yes but is everything compatable and such, like I wasn't sure if that was a good enough power-supply. Is it?

Yea the PSU should be good enough. But I would recommend brand name such as Antec or Thermaltake. I also hear that the Ultra X-Connect modular PSUs are good too.

Everything else looks fully compatible.

P.S. Very nice.

Thanks, there's a Thermaltake for only $10 more but it's 480Watt, is that enough or should I go for a more expensive, but higher watt one from Antec? (The Antec one they have is 550Watt for $69 more)

I would change a number of things including memory, power supply, and hard drives. I'd also scratch a couple of things altogether including a video card, and a network card, but that's my personal preference/bias.

That network card owns, it's a thing to brag about. Low CPU overhead, fast speed, it owns. Their's some things intel does right, and that's network cards, and their "other" processors.

With SLI'ED cards and a dual core CPU, your not going anywhere with that power supply. For a system like that, I would look at a PC Power and Cooling power supply.
