Honestly looks pretty good, I would strongly recommend a second monitor for programming.

It says you don't need an OS, but you have one listed?

Woops, accidentally left that in.

Thanks for the suggestion, I might go with two monitors in the future.

I'll go with the Samsung drive instead of the WD.

I'm debating between the 6850 and the GTX 460, they seem to have very similar performance in most games.

Oh, sorry about that!

Nothing has changed yet, except of course the HDD.
Any recommendations for a 1920 x 1080 monitor? I haven't bought one yet, and am looking for one in the 20" to 22" range(I have limited desk space).

My build is in the mail!

I ended up changing a few things to save money with combo deals. I went with a P7P55D-e instead of the pro version. You only loose SLI support and a few features, so it's not a big deal to me. Also, I ended up going with the WD hard drive because it was cheaper than separately buying the Samsung drive and my RAM(which came with the combo). Finally, I got Windows 7 Pro instead of Home Premium.

Thanks

Just got my build done. Booted up first try, and loaded Windows 7 without any problems. It was a great experience, and I'll definitely never buy a Dell again, lol.
