Nice, only change i would make is to get the 48701gb
downgrade to a 22" or 24" monitor and get a 4870 x2

Stop now don't buy any of that wait a month and buy Core i7 becuase it will be ten times better, and it will optimise all four cores.

Rag - I alrdy bought the Antec PSU about 2 months ago for $159 w $50 rebate so $109

Hop/Homeboy - Don;t think I can afford i7 maybe next build will go that way and yesI have thought about waiting until holiday sales but current PC is on last leg .

Coleman - Well was goign with Samsung TOC 24" but the at Fry's the 26" is only $50 more and yes more and more ppl keep saying get the 4879 1gb card . I just have always used Nvidia in the past and never had any issues . ( comfort ) I quess . But once down at the store will probadly try ATI this time .

lots of people have always stuck with nvidia, i guess its just personal preference, but the 4870 1gb will better.
