i'd like to hear any input about what i've selected so far. any and all info greatly appreciated. i'm a total noob at this, so i can use all the help i can get.
i want to use the system for some gaming, primarily racing games(which i dont believe are quite a graphic intensive as many games?). i'd like to keep the build under 1k. i will be using a 22" monitor if that makes a difference in what i've selected.
also... i've been told i should be able to find the e6750 for $183, anybody know where?

thx for the input guys, gives me some peace of mind.
fyi, if anyones looking for the corsair psu, i just ordered it today from buy.com they have it on sale for $99 + a $20 rebate, and if u use google checkout u get another $10 off. so i picked it up for $69 shipped after the rebate. will probably order the rest of the stuff in the next couple days.
if anyone's this build ended up right around $850 w/ a few rebates and w/ shipping. i ordered everything from 2 places, newegg and buy.com.
i went w/ everything i had on the first post except ended up sub'd a samsung dvd in place of the asus(samsung was only a few dollars more), and also added a nic card and some thermal compound to the order, all included in the $850.
thx for the input guys, i would have rather got the 8800, and i almost did just spend the extra and buy it. i had the 8800gts 640mb in my cart, then decided since the games i play right now supposedly run very well on the 1950xt, i figured i'd cheap out and stick w/ the 1950xt and upgrade to a 8800 or better later when i need it or prices go down. that is where i figured my first upgrade would go.
