the sole use for this PC is gaming.

Case: Cooler Master COSMOS
PS: Cooler Master Real power pro
CPU: Core i7 920
Mobo: EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1
V-card: EVGA 896-P3-1258-AR GeForce GTX 260
Memory: OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit
Cooling: Cooler Master Aquagate Max
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
HD: W D Caviar SE16 WD5000KSRTL 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s
DVD Drive: SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner

final price is $1,871.20, a little high for my budget.

I will probably run 2 video cards when prices drop. I will OC but nothing extreme.

Should I not buy any of these products?

Is the power supply good for this build, enuff watts??
Please suggest a good one or one that costs less and will do the job.

Any better deals on similar items that will do the job for cheaper please tell.

I'm open to any suggestions, comments, any advice is appreciated.

I need to buy a LCD 24" monitor as well so if you know of a good one,
a good dea etc.

Thank you.

You might save some money on the case by going with a CM 690, but since you're water cooling i'm not sure if everything will fit correctly. You can definitely save some money on the power supply by going with this one if you don't mind the red -

Also, you're going to want to get a 640gb version of the WD -

it's faster and offers better storage per dollar.

For the 24" I would go with -

Hope this helps!
