Well I dont really do serious gaming anymore like CS, COD, or any others. I guess I should have explained it a little better. My games consist of a yahoo game now and then.

I want the best for my money and would like to have at least 1 dvd burner. Please keep the suggestions coming.

I am sure I can do better like I said I have a budget of $800 80GB HD? I would need something bigger than that since I do a lot of downloading. My daughter is 9 and has a bigger HD than that...lol

Ok this is what I have in mind so far, let me know what you think.

intel Pentium 4 3.0E Prescott 800MHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache Socket 478 Processor - Retail 181.00
Abit VT7 Mother Board - Retail - 62.00
2 - 512 DDR Ram PC3200 184 pin
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD4000KD 400GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM 227.99
Rosewill RW92SE-128D Radeon 9200SE 128MB 64-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card - Retail 39.99

I have not decided on what type of dvd burners to get. I do not want a cd-rom drive. I am going to go with 2 dvd burners instead.

Post your opinion on what I have so far and what burners would go good with it.
