Acer 19" 1680x1050
Logitech Internet KB&M
RAIDMAX Tornado

PC P&C 420watt

For GPU the HIS HD4830 512mb GDDR3 or Sapphire HD3870 512mb GDDR3 are your best bets.

Good Luck with the build.

Here's what I came up with. I kinda ignored the RAID request but you could downgrade the the monitor to a 19" and the video card to a 4830 and you would have some room to play.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB = $59.99

Acer X223Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD = $159.99


ASUS EAH4850 TOP/HTDI/512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB
= $139.99 - $30.00 MIR

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 = $42.99

Rosewill R901-P BK Triple 120mm Cooling Fan, Mesh Design Front Panel, ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
+
Rosewill RP550-2 550W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply
= $79.98

GIGABYTE GA-EP43-UD3L LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard
+
Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz 2MB L2 Cache LGA 775
= $144.98

$627.92 + $16.99 = $644.91 - $30.00 MIR

Doesn't include a keyboard/mouse. If you swaped out the 4850 for a 4830 and the 22" for a 19" you would total = $564.01 shipped - $10 MIR. IMHO if its for gaming then the extra $50 is worth it.
