Thanks for everyone's imput. For the past few days all I have done is work at my stupid little job and look at computer parts online when I got home. It has finally payed off, I think. I hope. After taking into consideration everything I know, what I have been told, and what I have read, I think I have finally come up with a configuration that I will think about buying here in a couple months. Now I want you to evaluate it and see what you think. See if you think there needs to be any tweaking done to it or if you think I should get a different part. Anyways, I'll appreciate any feedback. The only things missing, from what I can tell, are the mouse, keyboard, and monitor. I figure I can buy those at Circuit City so I don't have to deal with shipping and such.
I will attach the actual .txt file so you can open it if you would like. It is done to look better and be more organized. Well, here you go.
