Only missing one more component for project

I somehow managed to get my project under $1,000 with the following items:
  • Biostar Tforce6100-939 mATX motherboard: $75
  • AMD Athlon x2 3800+ processor: $322
  • Kingston valueRAM 2x512mb: $73.10
  • Western Digital Caviar SE 80gb HDs 2x: $109.52
  • Liteon DVD burner: $39.88
  • EVGA GeForce 6800XT video card: $169
  • Cooler Master Liquid Cooling system: $88.99
The motherboard was just put on backorder on Newegg.com a few minutes ago, just when I was about to purchase those items. With shipping, the grand total comes out to $929.9!

From the looks of things, this computer will beat my current computer (which I'm planning on starting my own network in my room).

All I'm missing, is the monitor, or if I desire, then I need a keyboard and mouse, and possibly a switch to network these two together in my room.

I'm not a real fan of biostar motherboards. I've had issues with them in the past and don't buy the cheap boards anymore. Did you consider the micro-atx boards by asus?
