Looks good. Order! go go go!

I would have ordered exactly the same after all.

you dont have dvd burner or hard drive.

Those two together will prob get you around 100 bucks more.

There are 9800gtx's for $160?

Wait.. they are $200.... even for $40 more the 9800gtx is worth it, they are really overclockable

Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P3-N875-AR GeForce 9800 GTX KO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Ya, for the same price just get this.

Or heck.... why not a 4850 if it performs better?
