Those suggestions look nice.
But if you want to play games they'll start piling up: get a big HDD is my advice.

i wasn't intending to be horrible to him, sorry if thats the way it came across, but you would have to admit, if someone bought dual channel ram, they would want it to run in dual channel, so just having it there makes me think that he thought it would.

-maybe thats just me

Actually no, I put it together fast. I haven't been on these forums in a long time, so I've forgotten a lot of things, plus, I didn't look at all the specs, so that's my fault. Thor, is a friend of mine, he suggested 754 because he probably won't be upgrading that much anyway..
