Need your guys opinion on this Rig. Building it for mostly MMORPG gaming so need your thought if I am going the right way.

NEC 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Black IDE/ATAPI Model ND-3550A - OEM

ASUS VENTO 3600 Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Western Digital Raptor WD1500ADFD 150GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM

Western Digital Raptor WD740GD 74GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive - OEM

ViewSonic VG2021m Black 20" 8ms LCD Monitor

eVGA 123-K8-NF47-AX Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX AMD Motherboard

eVGA 512-P2-N575-AX Geforce 7900GTX 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

AOpen Cobra AW850D 5.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

SeaSonic S12-600 ATX12V 600W Power Supply

Logitech THX Z-5300e 280 Watts RMS 5.1 Speaker

ASPIRE KI- RED PS/2 Wired Standard Keyboard

Logitech Trackman Wheel 904353-0403 Grey 3 Buttons 1x Wheel USB + PS/2 TrackBall Mouse

Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model PDC2G3200ELK

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo 2000MHz HT Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA4800CDBOX

This is my starter system I plan on getting another 7900GTX for SLI just to see if the performance improves for the MMO and may add another cd burner not real sure yet on that. If i am missing anything just let me know and i will fix it. This Rig is gonna take me 5 months of solid saving of money to build so i want to do this right.

OK, my opinions then.

That case is vulgar - if you like that then fine. It is also made out of cheap plastics and has bad cooling.

You will be wasting your money on the raptors. Get a single 750gb Perpendicular Seagate drive. Will be just as fast.

You should wait until Conroe in July.

Please don't say that mouse is what I think it is!!!

One hard drive - Agree with Trifid on that one.

Better LCD monitor, 4MS or less response time. You will be thinking me while playing racing games at 250MPH.

LOL well case is staying i happen to like it and from what reviews i have read cooling is fine :P.....i have replaced the monitor with a BenQ FP93GX Black 19" 2ms LCD Monitor. And yes that is a Trackball mouse i find Trackballs to be so much easier to use than optical or regular mouses. Hard drives are staying im afraid i have had no luck with Seagate Hard drives and Westren Digital makes the most realiable IMHO, but thanks for the info keep the opinions comming.

The stats will disagree with you but what ever.

Can I tempt you with a 500gb Western Digital drive? Or possibly two of these in RAID0: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136004
