Have any reasons why you suggested that one? Also, what power supply would you suggest for that build? If I use the same case as the first one, would it be compatable?

I'm staying with either the Hitachi or WD Raptor X, I will look into the G.Skill though.

ehh FX is not as bad as you think though the AM2 version of FX is like double the price

me though i would just get w/e best for its money. Even with C2D out and alot better than Athlon im still thinking of getting a AThlon 64x2 5200+ with 2 ATI X1950 Pros. Would rather have better video than just better CPU

No! I already have an Intel build, E6600 Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM, 256MB Video, 250GB Drive, DVD+-RW, 19 Widescreen. Know what you're talkin' about before you assume.
