Alright I'm just about ready to order my setup from newegg. Here is what all I have selected. Let me know your opinions and/or any other recommendations. I'm still unsure of which vid card to go with...don't know if I want to go all out with the 6800GT or save a little $ and go with the 6600GT.

I'm not dead set on the case, I was kinda leaning towards it cause I like the way the Alienware cases look...its a little too bulky for me though and I'm sure I will choose a different one. I really want something that is pretty simple but sturdy. I like how your case turned out, but I dont care for that clear plastic piece on the front of it. I do want to find something that I can get painted.
As far as the mouse goes, just went with that because I liked the black/red color scheme on it. I probably should go with the 518
What would be a good sleek case to go with. I know I want a side window, dont care if it has a fan on the window or not. I would like to eventually get it painted probably to match my car (performance red) or torch red.
Also, is the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 a good enough sound card or should I go with the Audigy2 ZS Gamer?
On the monitor I selected it doesnt have a DVI slot, should i get a lcd with that or is the D-Sub going to be fine
I have had three different 6800GT's (PNY, BFG OC, and new Leadtek) and my Leadtek PCI-E card blows them all away. I have it running at 450/1200 speeds which is significantly above Ultra speeds and it idles at 52c. I got the card for $297 form xPCGear.com mailorder and would not trade it for anything.
