Jrod: I agree with you 100%: the 320GB HDD is more bang for the buck. It's all up to Cdub89 and whether he can afford the difference.
Talldude: Thanks. I even did a $600 "gaming" rig somewhere else in the forum. I really have fun with low-budget builds; with a $1200 budget it's almost boring because it's easy to select the parts, hehe.
Also, I had missed that video card rebate. Thanks for that. I still try to fulfil budget requirements without rebates.
