Anyways, here are on the specs on what I decided in the end ... things changed a bit from the last time I posted my desires.

[Core Components]
- Gigabyte 3D Aurora 570 ATX Full Tower
- Corsair HX620
- Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6750
- Patriot Extreme Performance 2x1GB DDR2-800 CL4
- Asus Radeon x1950 Pro 256MB GDDR3
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 500GB SATA2
- Samsung SH-S183L SATA DVD Burner w/ Lightscribe
- Windows Vista Home Premium

[Other Stuff]
- Acer AL2016WBBD 20IN Widescreen
- Edifier M3300 2.1 Speakers
- Saitek Eclipse Keyboard
- Razer DeathAdder Gaming Mouse
- Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
- Arctic Cooling 120mm Fan 1000RPM 37CFM 22DBA
- Corsair Flash Voyager 4GB

My initial $1500 budget got surpassed by over $100, but I'll survive.

I want to thank everyone again for all of your help and support. I couldn't have selected the quality components I did (or hope I did) without your guys advise and help. No bashing the Vista! I know XP beats it out performance wise right now ... but drivers and updates for Vista will come in time ... then I'll be laughing at you. hehe :) I also know the video card isn't super uber, but I plan to upgrade that for a good DX10 card sometime next year. Hopefully by then drivers will be improved, more/better dx10 games will be out, and a good card can be had for cheaper then current prices. Here's to hoping for a $250 8800GTS 640mb! lol
I would have changed a few things but either way good looking system.

Default Check for 2.2v jumper

Some motherboards have a 2.2v jumper.
I am not sure if the jumper is just to allow you to set higher ram voltage in the bios or if it will actually set the voltage to 2.2v on its own.
Just a thought.
