Just wanted to thank everyone for their input to my questions in this and other threads today. I may have gone a little overboard but with the 35% off it was too tempting to OD on the options and upgrades. I placed a new order for the following system tonight. I took most of ls3mach's advice but went for the 6800 anyway. I also went with the top warranty as this will be my main system for at least the next four years. I'm still slushing around with a 4-5 year old PIII so I tend not to upgrade until there is a darn good reason. Current reason, need the space... family planning.
With a 2 1/2 year old boy doing things boys do and the wife using the system as well, the accidental coverage became more of a must have IMO.
Oddly, the system should have come to $2221.86 with tax and enviro fee. The checkout came to $2213.11 since they estimate the tax at a weird rate and neglect the enviro fee even though it is listed on the page. When I got my confirming email and checked my order status online, the total new total comes to $2100.13. That's $121.73 less than what I figured. The system totaled out at $3172 before 35% off. Subtotal was $2061.80 on checkout but dropped to $1948.40 upon order confirmation.
Anyone else have this happen to them? Nothing has been dropped off the system and the pre discount total on the order summary still states $3172. Odd, but I'm not going to complain.
Anyway, here's my fourth and final(?) configuration:
