Okay, cool. I want somewhere around 8-16GB of RAM, so what would be good for that? And that means I need a 64-bit operating system, so does that mean I would have to buy it separately from my parts?

And thanks for the monitor page! They have some nice stuff there. Have you bought from them before?

8-16GB RAM? You can go with 12GB, either 3 X 4GB or 6 X 2GB and yea you will need to price in a W7 64 OS. And with two nice monitors you'd have a nice set up there.

I reckon the audio on your motherboard should be ok, unless you wanted to buy some nice speakers (surround sound or something) with a bit of that extra money you have then you would want a sound card, a 7.1 card most likely!

If I just wanted standard computer speakers, would I still need a sound card?

The high definition on-board audio is more than enough.
