    You are paying about $4k too much.

      If you are gong to spend that much, get the Z-680 5.1 Speaker set from Logitech. I have them and they are great.

            uhm yeah, reduce your budget by 2 grand and you can still build a better computer

            You gonna assemble this? Or is this an overpriced custom quote from some bigshot computer maker like Alienware or Falcon Northwest?

              I setup a Dual Xeon 3.4ghz system with 1 SCSI(OS) and 2 IDE(storage) harddrives 2GB of ram and a nice pci express video card, and a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS for 3750 and recently found a Tyan Mobo to accompany it (i have not found a price but i am "guessing" that it is around 750 or less) putting me at a 4500 budget, this also includes a very nice huge server case to fit the motherboard.

                This doesn't make sense. If you're going to spend 7,5 grand then you might as well get a socket 939 CPU. And besides, spending 7500 dollars on a computer is insane.
