Ah, I was going to suggest the E6750 for about $100 less. Then OC to the E6850 speeds on stock cooling (or an AC7 Pro if you were nervous about temps) The E6850 is still a great CPU, just a little overprice in terms of performance. My $0.02.
Anyways, enjoy the build. Should be a solid piece of gaming equipment.
i also need a 20" monitor. recomendations anyone?
Samsung comes highly recommended here, I don't think you can really go wrong with them. Personally, I've seen some pretty nice pictures from Viewsonic... steer clear of Westing House if you can though. I had one of those with a crappy screen (started to burn and fade after three days of owning it on economy mode
, the dullest setting.) It was pretty cheap in terms of craftsmanship and price. Another lesson of "You get what you pay for".
