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".
