    Samsung V series is a no no. Get either the T(twin mode), S(SOHO) or N(narrow bezel), but not the V. V is the value and has a lower MTBF rating.
    The rest of the parts look good to me. As for video, see if you can find a radeon 9700pro or even a 9800pro. Guessing from the costs you have listed, it's probably not going to happen, so something like a 9600 pro would also work.
