Ok. Thanks..

And omg it totalled up to be $1000....

Is there a site cheaper than newegg?

Or.. will buying parts from ebay (in working condition) be a good idea?

I'll pay whatever I can but i'm just wondering..

to drop the price a bit you dont need the 5600x2 you can get away with a 4200x2 and overclocking it (very easy to do and near impossible to actually damage the pc through overclocking as long as you have patience)

I would get this drive:

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD321KJ 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Modern games take up alot of disk space, and you may find yourself filling up a small disk very quickly. (It is also faster, and it has more cache than the seagate)

Its faster in benches real world it may knock off a nano-second from your load times. the seagate comes with a 5 year warranty and so you need to also take that into account
