Looks like an extremely solid setup, although for a monitor I just got an Acer AL2223W 22" widescreen
. It's almost the same price as that Samsung, but is bigger. Also, Asus motherboards tend to charge a price premium on the strength of their brand recognition, but aren't really any better than others. I'm not sure what criteria you're using for motherboard choice, but I can't imagine that you couldn't get one just as good for $50 less. The Antec P180 is widely acknowledged as the best case around, but $125 seems like a lot for a case to me. I'd go for something like the $50 Coolermaster one
, and together with the mobo, save ~$125 without really losing anything. Same with the PSU. It's basically the best you can buy, but you can pick up something like the FSP 450W
for less than half, and I doubt you'd ever know the difference. For the processor, unless you really need that extra power for something other than gaming, I'd personally save $100 with an e6400.
Basically, your setup is extremely good, but I think you can get something that's 99% as good and save ~$300.
