Hey dude what are you exactly going to use your system to do that is the main question when you are going to build a system as to know exactly you are going to put into your system. Like asking questions such as am I going to use my system to play hardcore high graphic games, am I going to play low graphics game such as wow that don't require that much graphics or do I just want a system to do work.

Its going to run a lot of higher end graphics games like Battlefield 2, Counterstrike, HL2, etc.

Fade2Black: And suggestions on layouts for better computers... Those were the best I could find to put together for the price...
