    Everything looks great,

    BUT I would cut down on some things for a 24 inch monitor. It would be nice having all that power but you need to see it .

    I would improve if I could, but i've no space for a 24". Maybe a 21", if i can find one, but 19" is the best for me.

    Looks great, pretty much perfect. Unless that a CRT, you won't be using 1600x1200.

    Either get a high quality 21" CRT, or at least a 20.1" LCD.

    Agreed, go with at least a 20.1" LCD. And I'd recommend the A8N32 over the MVP. Just my opinion.

    Either way that's quite enviable.

    My only comment with that system is that if you get an ATI graphics card get an ATI chipset motherboard and likewise if you get an nVidia graphics card get an nVidia chipset motherboard, this will make upgrading at a later date cheaper and easier (relatively anyway) if you decide to get a second graphics card. And by the way i wish i had that much money to spend on a new rig

    when i'll have the rig, I review it and take some pics, no problem I've seen about the monitor, but here in Portugal there are only 19". And there are no €€ for a 20'1" LCD
