vic... looking at those specs im guessing ur trying to build a mid-end gaming PC? a 22" LCD has a native res of 1680 x 1050, which may make certain games look funny. the 8600gt also may struggle at playing certain games at that res. myself, i've always been AMD all the way. and do you really need the G15? if you dont use any macros or the built-in LED, its just a waste of money. also perhaps get a 2nd smaller hdd to use as a primary for the OS. the 250gb can be secondary for the programs / mp3s / etc.
