but still good?

i thought up.

q400
p5n-t deluxe
xms2 dominator 4gb(2x2gb)
w.d caviar black 640GB
corsair tx series 750W
HAF 932
BFG GeFore GTX 260 OC Maxcore 55
LG GH22N530 Black SATA DVD-Writer
creative sound blaster x-fi titanium

and that came up to, including tax,

$1794.90

and thats w/o the monitor which im hoping to get the samsung 2443bw :'(

Is the cpu Q9400? It's alright, but I'd go with Q6600, especially if I'm overclocking it.

Are you gonna SLI? If not, pick out a P45 mobo by ASUS. Seems you like that brand.

750W is enough for dual GTX260's, but not 280's or 285's. I'm saying if you upgrade the 260's to two more powerful cards, the 750W may not be enough. 1000W+ will be.
