Yeah, that's pretty much top of the line stuff already. You can get a faster CPU though if you're willing to spend over a grand for it. That video card is the absolute killer. I would love to get my hands on that. If you want to get a sound card, any SoundBlaster Audigy 2 card will do nicely. I guess that pretty much wraps it up. You'll also need fans, DVD-RW, floppy drive (just in case), power supply, case, and whatever little accessories you may need.

Don't forget a good sound system... like the logitech 5500e's or the 5300e's... or even the z-680's. Like this, for instance... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836121120

Yeah, the 5300e's are good. I'm gonna get them soon. Who really needs 1000 watts peak? sheesh... nice remote though.... but still. I love the 5300e's.

the 5300e's have 560w peak and thats way more than enough, and the remote may not be as nice but at least u wont be making sure nobody scratches or drops it or anything because it feels very solidly made
