Looks like one nice, solid rig there slade. Im not sure how much of a gamer you are, so this suggestions might not apply, however, if you use your computer for anything other then gaming you might consider a 7200 rpm 80gig+ storage hdd. I know when I install all of my games it takes upwards of 50+gigs.... but other then the relativly small storage space, its a nice rig, will last you a good while! (and nice ram!)

Slade, you, sir, are an Ebay MASTER! Teach me.... seriously you pretty much got all your stuff for like 30% off NewEgg prices, which are dirt cheap for most e-stores.
