INTEL Core 2 Quad Q9300 2.50GHz
Asus Maximus Extreme
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB 1333 MHz DDR3
Deskstar 7K1000 750Gb Sata-Ii
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT 512MB
Antec Sonata Plus 550
LG L227WT 22 inch TFT LCD Monitor
Samsung SH-S202 20X IDE DVDRW
Samsung SH-S202 20X IDE DVDRW

Thank you!!
the maximus extreme is a bit overkill for what you're doing. A Gigabyte P35 DS3L would suit your needs fine. With that, you can get some Crucial Ballistix ram, and 4gb of that. The Proc is a good choice for what you'll be doing. Maybe throw in a 8600gt instead, just cause the 8500gt is a hunk of junk. i would say for a HDD go for a WD 640gb HDD, they are extremely cheap right now, and highest quality drives. Also definitely go for SATA DVDRW drives.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
