I was going to say that burner is way out there in price don't know how much 3d burning you plan on doing but WOW.
My LG Blu Ray burner with lightscribe was under $100 and I really like it a lot.
Also in deals of the day I posted Mushkin DDR3 12 gb 3x4gb for $199.99 with the code. But then I just happen to like Mushkin as well.

Thanks again Fabe, I won't be purchasing it this week because I haven't graduated yet. But this is a "Future" build, i s'pose you could say.

That looks like it's going to be a fine machine Dreadstar. I too have my doubts about the blu-ray burner but that's because I have one and find I don't use it much. I can't see having a 3D burner as being of much use but maybe you are going big on 3D.
I do still have reservations about your choice of monitor. The Acer is a fine monitor for what it is but it's still a TN panel. These can only be viewed from one position or the colour and contrast will change.
Given that your intending to have a 6 monitor array this could be problematic.
Do have a look at this: ViewSonic VP2365WB 23-Inch IPS LCD Monitor or the Dell and the NEC Multisync I mentioned in my earlier post. You won't regret it

That Blu-ray was something I just picked out without reading much about it, I'm kind of building for the future as well.

As for the monitor's; I was somewhat using them as an example, and somewhat half-serious about them. I'm not caught up to times on the latest monitors and what not, I'm used to just having 1 monitor, maybe 2 if I'm needing it.

I'm trying to do all my shopping in one or two places, that way I can keep the shipping cost at one place. Though my motherboard will be coming from EVGA so yeah.

Thanks for the input john
