are you really willing to spend that much?? dont answer that i can tell. to me that setup looks perfect for a gamer, altho alot of computer noobs/business men (corporate, like CEOS and whatnot) will tell you that dual cores are only for presentations and have no purpose for gaming. i know a couple of peeps who did say that to me personally

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Dear newb,

Nice setup but why buy a motherboard that has on-board graphics when you plan to use a vid card?

You would be better to get a different motherboard.

Also, get a better case. You will kick yourself in the butt by not getting a case with enough cooling.

If you go cheap on your burners, they will go cheap on you. I recommend Sony for your burners (don't use the Sony software to burn).

BUY A VANTEC FAN CARD! You will thank me later.

You can buy two very fast Western Digital SATA 200 GB for almost the same price as the 74GB Raptor. Remember, CPU's don't go that fast so you are paying for a lot of useless speed.

The memory rocks...LEDs are useless.

Power supply is what I use...Good!

Vid card brand not so good. Go with ASUS or Abit.

Sorry for the forwardness.

Let us know,

junkdk :thumbsup:
