Do you think this is a good computer for about $1750 including tax?

I need some suggestions on how I could improve this build, maybe make it a bit cheaper. I intend to use this computer for playing games and Photoshop, and I don't intend to really upgrade a whole lot in these next few years as I will be saving for College/University. A friend helped me out with this build order, I'll probably be using a crappy monitor until I can afford to buy a better one around christmas. (this already goes over my budget by about $50)

Pretty good, but you may want to get a better power supply for some extra breathing room. Those 5870s take up a lot of power, so you might want to go up to 750W or something just to be extra clear. Or you could grab a Corsair HX-620, because I know they have one of the highest amperage for PSUs in that wattage range.

I agree with Ziggy, other than that it sounds ok
