looks good. and if you want to add another 2gb alongside the current ones you should get the exact same kind. Mixing memory can be risky, it doesn't always want to play nice.

looks good... only thing i can say is i haven't really heard much about samsung hard drives... western digital and seagate are by far the most popular.

the benefit of the seagate one i suggested is it has the 32mb cache... you're specifically stating that you want fast response from your hard drive, so that's just another spec you can increase without throwing away your money at a 10k rpm hdd.

up to you though... the samsung will probably be fine, as would a WD or seagate.

rest looks good.

looks good, and to spit-wad...just google reviews. The 640gb samsung is the fastest 7200rpm hard drive you can buy.

Change the video card to this because its faster and cheaper: Newegg.com - ASUS EN9600GSO TOP/HTDP/384M GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

actually the XFX card is faster

if you want to change cards then this is better and cheaper
Newegg.com - MSI R4670-2D512 Radeon HD 4670 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

basically a 3870 with the architectural advantages of the RV7xx series.
