    The monitors would be the first thing I'd change, Also check out foamforyou.com has way better deals then auralex.

    And I'd go with a Blue or Nuemann Mic over the RODE personally.

    set up sounds pretty cool. I do agree though with the microphone comment. Rode is dope but Neuman is that jump off. It would behoove you to use a nice pre with that though like a avalon or universal audio 610. but im a little jealous you got more than I got lol

    I would do several things different.. skip the creation station.. get a mac.. I promise you'll thank me... I have a creation station.. they're as good as any recording pc gets pretty much but got nothing on a mac... also.. of the top your hard drive is way small and you'll run out of room pretty quick.. I'd at least go 500, but 1TB would be a solid investment since you get it at a much better value..

    With PT 9 your interface options are considerably better than ever.. personally I would look at something HD like a rosetta... you could definitely spend this amount of money much more to your advantage..

    If you take no other advice from me.. please take this advice... SKIP the Factory.. you don't need it when you consider you could save a ton of loot getting at least just the rack.. then maybe put the extra cash into a better mic.. or maybe a pre-amp.. I hope you're not planning on just using the 003 pre's.. they're barely average compared to adding any high end pre and especially the pre that matches your mic and voice etc..

    scratch the pro tools custom keyboard.. not hardly worth the price.. get one on ebay if you must have it, but you don't need it..

    Those monitors aren't bad but I would consider stepping them up as important as they are.. check out some jbl's or some adams

    mic suggestions... I love my u87 and my ma-200.. the Manley cardoid reference mic is sic.. a lot of good mics out there at $1000 and up as for getting the most for your dollar.. but remember that u87 might sound great for most and sounds like shit on 1 in 10 or so..

    I can't stress enough how much I would consider going mac though.. it makes life sooooo much easier.. and this is coming from someone who was a pc cat for over a decade.. a mac is an investment and even at the inflated price it will pay for itself twice or more compared to the money you will drop on pc's... there truly is no contest on any level.. go with the i7 processor and you'll thank me.
