From what yu have posted I can say;
cpu: Q6600 is old get a Q9300 or Q9450 if you wantquad but many programs don't utilise all cores so can't say whether you need it until you say what programs they are that are always open.
Harddrive- get one for storage and one for the os
Case: good case if you like that style I personally prefer the lian li offereigs not so bling
speakers: good pc speakers
OS: get home premium ultimate isn't worth the extra cost and get an OEM cd
Ok so I will probably need two 500gb HDD then. Any preference?
Yea I like that case. I liked the 900 my buddy used a few years ago in college.
Yea I was thinking ultimate might be out there. I don't think I would use the extra features. Thanks for the response.
Looking at standing under 1200 for everything including the monitor.
