Also, that PSU is a tad overpriced. a good 500w could set you back 50 bucks before a 20 dollar MIR, or the same brand has a 610w for 90 bucks with a 30 dollar MIR.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

And don't get that Samsung...it's way overpriced, and I have no idea where you're getting that cost from.

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive (bare drive) - Internal Hard Drives

1.5tb, 130 bucks. No brainer there.

Good call on the CPU, mobo, and RAM.
someone once told me to combo intel/nvidia rather than intel/radeon but i might be way off there.

that price is a actually for two 1tb samsung drives...

is it worth going to 8gb of ram for $99 (ozc gold set).

i chose that PS cuz of the 6x sata hookups and cuz of the brand.. but you're right, its expensive in comparison...
