MoBo: why not GIGABYTE GA-965P-S3 for $124.99? Same performance as the DS3... just no solid caps.

PSU: that Hiper has only 28A on the 12V rails... ouch. I'd get this one: SILVERSTONE SST-ST50EF ATX12V 500W $87.50. 35A on the 12V rails much better

RAM: I'd take a look at the Team Xtreem stuff Tankguys is selling: Team Xstreem 2 Gb Kit DDR2 (2x 1Gb) 4-4-4-10 800Mhz $305.00. Memory Chip Type: Micron D9GMH. RAM is the one item NOT to skimp on.

video: Here is a cheaper 7600GT: eVGA 256-P2-N550 -T2 GeForce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 $119.99

Monitor: Hanns·G HW-191DPB Black 19" 5ms $179.99. Those Hanns.G things supposedly are pretty darn good

How are you goign to cool that rig?

I think I'm gonna buy the memory. The monitor too. The power supply is out of stock - any other ideas?

Thanks Chozart.
