Hi, I am going to buy a new custom built PC with the following specs but I would like to have some feedback about it so that I would know whether I am buying the right things or not.

So the list is;

Motherboard - Asus Blitz Formula SE iP35
C.P.U. - Intel Core2Quad Q6600
R.A.M. - Corsair TwinX XMS2 Dominator PC8500 (1066Mhz)
Video-card - 728MB BFG PCI-Express GF 8800GTX
Speakers - Logitech X540 5.1 Surround Speakers
Hard-Disk - 2* 500GB 7200rpm - Seagate SATA2
Power Supply - Enermax Galaxy 1000W
Optical Drive - Pioneer DVR-212 18x Black Dual Layer
U.P.S. - 1400VA Centralion Blazer Line Interactive
Windows - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium (OEM)
Network - Edimax 54G Wireless USB Adaptor
Case - ThermalTake Kandalf
Keyboard and Mouse - Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Desktop 7000

I am not sure about the printer and monitor to buy but all that I know is that with regards to the:

Printer - It should be all-in-one (no fax needed), should be network enabled and could be used when the main PC the printer is installed on is switched off, would have a high printing resolution, comes also with an LCD screen and a card-reader.

Monitor - First of all I would like a wide monitor either 19" or 22" with outstanding picture quality and that the frame would be black in colour.

Also I am not sure whether to install a water cooling system to it as well since I am abit skeptic about it. Otherwise could please someone suggest me an alternative cooling system that is very good and would cool down the system well.

So, could someone suggest me brands and models with regards to the printer and monitor since I do not know what the choose exaclty.

Hope there would be feedback since I really need it.

Over your system looks nice, my suggestions for the printer/all in one: http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping...de=Q8220A%23ABA
for Your widescreen monitor, I like this one: http://www.samsung.com/us/consumer/detail/...=LS24HUBCFV/XAA

I wouldn't go with Vista until it has its first service pack, it's still buggy.

You don't need a 1000W PSU for that. I'm running more than that on my 600W Enermax.
