OCZ for RAM

go for a Seagate 7200RPM drive. you won't notice that much difference on the Raptor, except for loading times.
you can use the money saved on something else.

Athlon 64's don't use DDR2 yet

you can't use a socket 940 CPU in a socket 939 board

don't get an XFX card. get an eVGA or Leadtek
