Building my first desktop and want to keep the budget between 700-800 dollars. I need a basic gaming pc (for mostly mmos, have a ps3 for other games). I'm going to hook it up to a 24inch widescreen LCD monitor( not included in the budget). I've done some research and this is what I have so far..

TOTAL so far =$760 (ignoring tax and shipping atm)
Firstly, are these part I've chosen so far work well together? Are there any decent upgrades for a little more $$ ?
Also, did I miss anything?
I' trying to get the best possible gaming pc for 700$ (or slightly more). I plan to run vista on the machine.
Any other thoughts suggestions?
