If you REALLY have to cut the cost to sub $800, then replace the 8800 GTS with a 8600 GTS, specially if you have a 17" or 19" monitor. otherwise the configuration above is strong enough for the next two years ( the e4300 can be overclcoked easily and can reach impressive results) .

croshair 2x512 6400 (is this the best for my budget ?)

Crosshair? I think you mean Corsair. And yes, that is best.

For a DVD burner, any Samsung, Lite-On, or NEC will do. They're all pretty much the same at the ~$30 OEM price point.

Video card, probably a 7600GT would be a good one. The 8600GT is more expensive, not much better, and I doubt you'll be doing anything DX10-related...right now it's just an extra expense.

you might want to give more information on what exactly you are looking for in a vga card? best price/performance, expected resolutions you plan to use in gaming and seperately for desktop apps, whether you want to be some form of future proof( with dx10 card ). Id suggest an 8600 or 8800, although if i was getting it myself i would dump the 8600 and go for a 8800GTS especially if you want to be playing good games at decent quality in 2 years time, although dx10 is unproven at the moment so we're all in the same boat

The X1950's are always another option. The cheapest X1950XT is just under $200 dollars, pretty good deal in my opinon.
