But again, more help with the actual computer build would be appreciated you guys, thanks for the replies

As for monitor, given that you mention you also do graphic design, investing in a good monitor is probably a good idea.

I'm probably going to be getting the Superclocked EVGA GTX 560 and I'm wondering if my 380 watt power supply from the econobox would provide enough power to run everything. If anyone could help point me to the right direction as far as power supply goes I would greatly appreciate it! Right now my total price is around 740$ and I would love to keep it under 800$

Processor- Intel Core i5-3450 3.1GHz
Video Card- EVGA Superclocked GTX 560
Memory- Mushkin 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
Storage- Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB & OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD
DVD Drive- Asus DRW-24B1ST
Power Supply- Cooler Master GX 450W
Case- Antec Three Hundred
Monitor- ASUS Black 21.5" IPS Panel LED-backlit Widescreen LCD Monitor
All for a grand total of $1045 with shipping, which is around exactly what I was looking for
Any other recommendations? Or if anything isn't compatible or won't really work together well I would greatly appreciate a comment.
Thanks a ton for the help guys!

Also, you mentioned being a graphics designer...is this a production machine? If so, I would still be a little leary of the OCZ drive even though the "3" version supposedly deals with all of the early troubles in that line. The Crucial M4 has earned a better rep and is not that much more expensive.

instead of the older three hundred.

Just to make sure though, what's Win7 Pro?
I don't understand what you mean about the SSD, I know nothing of SSD's besides the fact that I hear they're a lot faster. XD
