Not stupid at all sometimes the product shorthand is pretty difficult to work out.
You were looking at two ATI radeon HD4890 graphics cards. Philbar suggests a single ATI radeon HD 5850 or 5870 would be better.

You wanted to know a good heatsink so philbar suggested a thermalright TRUE.

The links to your selection of case, memory and HDDs were broken, you have now fixed them.

You should grab a smaller hard drive that is faster, and use a larger one to back up your data. You definitely don't want to use a 5900rpm drive like that 2TB for your Operating system and applications, plus if it fails then you have lost everything. Maybe grab a Western Digital Black 320GB-640GB for your 1st drive and then a 1TB-2TB for storage. Nice choice on the PSU and case.

You don't actually need a smaller one for faster, but since the point of the drive is only to have OS+programs, if you have a very large drive the space is usually wasted.
I mean, I have a 40GB for my OS (7), I still have about half left after OS + programs.

That's a 2.5" drive, you will want a 3.5" one. Something like this Newegg.com - HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C HDS721032CLA362 &#40;0A39264&#41; 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb&#47;s 3.5&#34; Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

You don't ned a smaller one to be faster, just that speed increases price, and so does size.

Being just for the os, you don't need a large drive, so can cheap out with a smaller one.

The drive you choose is a laptop drive, hence the 2.5" drive..

I like my seagates so
