I want to thank the responders to my post about my gaming/work build. I appreciate the advice and the spirit in which it was given. For those interested in my final selections with rebates it came out to about $750.

Again thank you all and Tom's!

looks really solid, only difference is I went with the Gigabyte UD3P, because I selected a 1gig HD 4870, and I also selected the Corsair TX750w PSU. Oh ya also did 2x2gb Crucial Ballistix memory.

Other than that our systems are the same.
