Better hard drive : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You do not need that 750TX unless you plan to Crossfire 2 x 5850s. Even if you add a second 5770 a 550w unit is plenty so you can save a few dollars there : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This memory has much lower cas latency making it faster : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This is out of stock at newegg but is one of the best coolers for the price. I have no doubt you can find it somewhere else close in price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It will increase price quite a bit but for that monitor a 5850 is a better choice if gaming is your number one concern.

What about a DVD drive? It is not in your listed part. Do you already have it?
