Graphic card: XFX 5850 342$ (XFX version)

CPU: i5 750

Mother board: Gigabyte P55-UD4P
I'll overclock the i5 to 3.2Ghz w/ turbo - if you have any suggestion, keep that in consideration!
Someone suggested this mobo: ASUS P7P55D-E PRO
Should I spend more for this mobo or just stick with my old pick for that overclock range?

Memory: 1300 or 1600?
1300:G.skill Ripjaws Series 4GB

HHD: 2xSamsung spinpoint F3 110$ for a RAID 0 array

PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W $109.99 (Before $20.00 USD Mail-In Rebate)Free Shipping*

Drive: SAMSUNG Black 22X 35$
Any cheaper option?

Monitor: Hanns·G HH-281HPB Black 28" 3ms HDMI $339.99

HSF: Coolermaster Hyper 212 31$
Any +1 for that cooler?

Case: Since I’m no more going for a C/F build, I gues it’s a good idea to change of case. I have to admit I have zero knowledge about this. free ship 110$

***I made this build ~1 month ago, I was really going to buy these pieces, but I heard USB 3 was coming & 6Gb mobo too so I decided to wait until I go back to school. Now I'm not sure if it's again the good time to buy a system, but I need one =S***

My old router died, I need a new one.
Do you have any suggestion? I don't really use wireless connection, but I looks like wireless routers are cheaper ?!

I just checked for the 5850 (I was wondering if the price changed) and it is now at 308$. I noticed that some model have higher frequency (and higher price). I gues that these card are pre-overlocked and I am wondering if I can do it myself instead of paying 30+$ for one!
