This is the new build I was going to purchase. I was trying to get some input on what people thought about it. Really wondering if the components I've decided on good choices or not and if there may be alternatives that could be a bit cheaper. Thanks for any input.

MSI X58 Pro-E LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i7-920
G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB
SAPPHIRE 100282SR Radeon HD 5850 1GB
COOLER MASTER Intel Core i7 compatible Hyper N 520 RR-920-N520-GP 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Thinking about using my 32' LCD HDTV as my monitor.

Looks reasonable.
You might get a better response if you posted links to the parts.

I might by preference order differently

For example, newegg has a sale on Antec 902 for $95 delivered after rebate, less if you use code emcmmp42:

Which G.Skill RAM? CAS 9 or CAS 7?

I recommend a different motherboard though:

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 - $173.99 after rebate ($188.99 before rebate)

Aside from that, good build.

Thanks for the feedback. That ram is CAS 9, and the Gigabyte board looks good and a bit cheaper.
