Use 2x512MB memory to be able to use dual-channel.

The GeForce 6600 isn't worth anything anymore in gaming. Besides, you can get a GeForce 7600GS for the same price.

Use Segate of Western Digital hard-drives instead. I've had too many Maxtor hard-drives fail on me.

I'd also go with a better video card - if you game, you'll need the best that you can afford.

Its not going to be used for intense games, and Maxtor drives work great for me. I will be playing games from the internet rather than from a CD or DVD. But I WILL be using it for multimedia also. If it makes it any better, I will change the video card to a 6600GT. My friend has one and gets good FPS on all games.

Seagate drives have 5 year warranties. No other manufacturer does.

If you can get a Seagate for near the same price you will be much better off.

Maxtor is made by Seagate and is it's lower line of hard drives.
