Yes. The Rig in my sig cost me about $1600, but if you get what is in my sig you should be fine. It would probably cost you a little under $1400 cuz i got some extra things (new CPU heatsink, "good" overclocking RAM). Plus prices have gone down since I bought it. The HDD is like $15 cheaper, CPU is $10 less, 7800gt is like $80 less

AMD 3700
DFI lanparty Ultra-D mobo
2GB G.Skill RAM
evga 7800gt
Antec Truepower 550W PSU
WD 250GB SATA II 16MB cache HDD
etc.

Ok now heres a stupid question could I take my current harddrive and move everything to a new one then wipe out the old one and make the new one the main harddrive?

Also could I get a more detailed build?

yes, its called drive imaging. or if you mean just tranfer all your data minus windows and programs i would suggest "dividing" the hdd into partitions, copying all your files to a large storage partition and leaving a smaller partition for windows and programs to be installed to

We can't see your shopping cart without logging in as you, put it all in a wish list then post a link to that.

Or just copy and paste it and post it.
