Building a rig out of spare parts : any donations?

Since i have all the working parts off my old build after i gutted the crap out of it trying to find the problem, i have been building it in a spare chassis i have.

I have the following going in :

Coolermaster 750W Real Power
EVGA 680i motherboard
Core 2 Duo E6600 OCed to 3.4ghz
Aftermarket pizioelectric cooler
8Gigs of DDR2 800mhz
Radeon X 1950 XT graphics card

Looks like all i need now is :

An LCD monitor of some kind
a keyboard
a SATA hard drive
a copy of windows
an optical drive of some kind

and i will have a good rig to go for friends to come over and use for some "LAN party" style gaming. I know the X 1950 XT isnt the greatest, but it was a donation and its working great so far on my new rig while i want for EVGA to send me my replacement card.

if your spare rig is a q6600 prob won't get too much sympathy for parts

lcds seem to be pretty cheap now along with hard drives.

check craigslist or fry's ads

It's an E6600.
