I think that you have to reformat when you buy a new computer, since Windows has adapted to your old PC. Is this going to be an upgrade though? Or a whole new system minus HD and CD burner?

well i think its going to be an upgrade but i still want to keep my old hard drive and optical drives becuz i have windows on it, but i guess its also a completely a new system becuz im removing almost all the old components like the case, mobo, processor, power, memory and graphics. all i really want is a fast upgradable computer that can play day of defeat source at good settings and good fps!

You're going to have to format your HDD anyway, for the reason talldude mentioned.

Dude what the use of asking if you have already made up your mind...

And also get DDR2 800, DDR2 667 just doesnt cut it anymore. Get 2 DDR2 800 512 Mb sticks and run them in dual channel mode and you will get equaly DDR2 1600
