Everything's good but reconsider the graphics card.

I really don't rate the HD5770. If it was cheaper then it would be a good buy but there's better cards for a little extra money.

Go for a 768MB GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) graphics card, it pwns a HD5770. If you can spend a little extra and get the 1GB GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) then it'd be even better. For the money it's a great card.

If it wasn't for the GTX 460's i'd have recommended a HD4870/4890.

Never mind, I changed it again. This should be it, I just figured how to use Bing. 15% discount was real nice and it helped me get better parts for the same price I was about to pay.

Vid card- 300
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=P450-5856

Case- 140
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=C283-1187

Ram- 200
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...7&sku=C13-2048

HDD- 95
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...sku=TSD-1000WD

MOBO- 300
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=A455-2869

CPU+ Cooler- 409
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...2&sku=S19-4136

Dvd drive- 21
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...451-1012%20OEM

PSU- 170
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...4&sku=ULT40312

Total cost around 1330 after rebates and bing cash back. I think this is a lot better. I picked out a better vid card, better mobo, better cooler, and psu. I wanted to know if the cooler will fit into my full tower case. And If the Psu is powerful enough? Going to buy the parts today. Thank guys for your help!

Changed some items, so that my budget can fit in an lcd monitor.

C13-6182 ::Corsair Core i7 Dominator 6GB PC12800 DDR3 RAM - Tri Channel, 1600MHz, 6144MB (3 x 2048MB), DHX(0.7 lbs)

C283-1187 ::Cooler Master HAF 932 Full Tower Black Case(33.7 lbs)

S203-2319 ::Samsung P2350-1 23" Widescreen ToC LCD Monitor - 1080p, 1920x1080, 50000:1 Dynamic, 1000:1 Native, 2ms, VGA, DVI(14.8 lbs)

S19-4136 ::Intel Core i7 930 Processor w/ Ultra ChillTec Black CPU Cooler Bundle(5.5 lbs)

P450-5772 ::XFX HD-577X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 1GB PCIe DDR5 Display Port/HDMI(3.1 lbs)

U12-40504 ::Ultra X4 750-Watt Modular Power Supply - 135mm Fan, ATX, Lifetime Warranty, 80+ Bronze, NVIDIA SLI & ATI Crossfire Certifications.(8.92 lbs)

A455-2869 ::ASUS P6X58D Premium Motherboard - LGA 1366, Intel X58, SATA, SLI Ready, CrossFireX Ready, Triple Channel DDR3 support, RAID, Hyperthreading, USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s(5.2 lbs)

TSD-1000WD ::Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black Hard Drive - 1TB, 7200 RPM, 32MB, SATA-300(2 lbs)

Downgraded couple items.
The vid card I choose the 5770 because it was only 145 dollars. Compared to the 5870 which cost around 260
The power supply I also choose a cheaper one. saved 40-50 there. This a good move? I'm using an 17 inch right now and its old.

Getting ready to pull the trigger.
