Nice build................except for the Acer monitor.

I've built a number of "Budget" builds for clients & friends and looking at yours it's real nice.

I usually try to get something for nothing in my budget builds so overclocking is the name of the game. Too bad you couldn't get your hands on a unlockable & stable X2 550. Quad for free and overcloks as well.

As for ram since the Phenom Quad & your motherboard choice can use faster ram, not talking about DDR3, why not go for some G.Skill PC2-8500 at just $3 more?

I also swear by this mouse which costs much less than the Logitech you list. It's the OCZ Behemoth.

Still I like the look of your build, but ditch the Acer ASAP!.
