Thank you everybody for your replies. It is much appreciated.

I have one last question, thus far. Which is, is a 500GB Hard Drive necessary? Could I drop down to a 300GB Hard Drive or around there and still be fine without anything dropping in performance?

Hard Drive Capacity doesn't affect performance... but the RPM does... but you have 7200RPM which is fine..

I think that I am going to drop down to 300GB. I can't see myself using up more than 300GB, no way.
