First, why that power strip? You could get one like this power strip for cheaper. Also, it includes a couple of extras, like cable protection (my sister's computer actually got fried from a power surge on their cable line).

Another thing, what do you need so many Ethernet ports for? You do realize that the card will bring you to a total of 3 right?

One extra thing you could add in there, if you like watching movies, is a Blu-Ray drive. A Blu-Ray drive would be a lot cheaper then a standalone player (as low as $99 depending on the brand).

I'll look into the power-surge. Anyway, I need the ethernet ports and uh, I don't buy discs of any kind, ever. I'd only use it for burning ISOs.
