You're most welcome, danpiz.
I forgot to add the peripherals, so -
Monitor - Get something from LG/Samsung/Asus/Acer/Dell (min - 16:9, 50000:1, 300 cd/m2, 5ms) - $200 LG Widescreen LCD Monitor
Wireless Keyboard and Mouse - $38 Logitech Wireless Desktop MK320
Speakers from Creative/Logitech (~20-ish) should do just fine, IMO.
It's just a personal thing & I try to stick to the well established brands myself, especially when building for/recommending to others & your reputation is at stake.
The aforementioned components are gonna add 'bout $250-260 to the cost, so that 750 that you were taking about is a reality for sure.
