Here are some things to save some money:

Acer AL2216WBD 22" Widescreen LCD Monitor = $199.99
I have the one you want, but this one is pretty close and $40 cheaper.

That $40 saved will almost buy you this:
EVGA 320-P2-N811-AR GeForce 8800GTS 320MB = $259.99 after rebate
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

As for the PSU, I think you could drop the price of that a bit and maybe get that 8800 GTS for the same price. Here's one:
HIPER HPU-4K530-MS ATX12V v2.2 530W Power Supply = $84.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817128006

Edit: Don't forget to buy an operating system.
