Get the Tt Big Typhoon for the CPU cooler, trust me. Other than that I have the same monitor and it is very nice, probably my fave of all LCDs and my brother has that RAM but DDR600 and it is also very good.

He's got an X800 and is looking at an AGP mobo. It's called pinching your pennies. I'd get a better case. Personally, I would get a PCIe mobo and GPU, so that way you can keep the other PC for someone else in your family to use. Or set it up for folding or as a linux server.

You need ARCTIC SILVER 5, not Silver Adhesive.... =)

Btw, if you have the money, why not go with a 15k RPM Hitachi Cheetah... Those are so sexy.. lol =)

And yeah, your going to need a video card. *****

If your getting 2GB then get this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231021

Also, get this CPU instead:
