. Register an account and set up a deal alert for the word keyboard. The same goes for your monitor. You can get a 22 inch monitor somewhere for the price you have listed for that 19" on Newegg. I know right now Staples has a 19" monitor for $120 right now in stores.
Thermal Interface Material
Arctic Silver 5 is cheaper here
$5.99 shipped but it's Paypal only.
Not a bad choice and NE definitely has the cheapest shipped priced around since they are offering free shipping.
Thanks for the advice. I went ahead and orded some cabling from monoprice.com and some artic silver from pcviper. The only cable monoprice didn't have was the round ide cable. It only has it in pretty long lengths for a higher price than newegg and not in my preferred color so I skipped that for now.
There isn't an office max around here so I'm out of luck on that monitor deal since it's B&M only. Thanks for mentioning it though.
I also registered at slickdeals.net so hopefully one will come up there soon.

Congrats on going to college and always stinks leaving your parents huh? Or maybe your glad to go (: Have fun at college man, I did.
I am considering intel and actually have an intel wishlist made up but I'm not sure if I want to take the plunge into buying my first intel processor. If I go intel I really want to go for one of the new 45nm quad cores but they are really pricey atm and out of stock everywhere.
