ok thanks for the help trotter, ive got two freinds who are gonna help me build this, so in the next few days ill be putting the final pieces together. Unfortunately im gonna miss out on that weekend deal on the hard drive. But it looks like this is gonna be a nice PC with good upgradeability options, plus i can't wait to use my media center with my 360, and watch video i have on my computer with my component input on my 27" tv. Oh and i use a wireless mouse with this laptop, and i don't really have any problems. I did have problems with my last wireless mouse, but that was one with a stupid ball in the bottom(i can't remember what they're called)and the logitech one was optical.
