Those are rediculous, you don't need sound like that unless you can't live with onboard sound and 2.1

After all of the different variations of builds. I'll wait a few more months and just start saving to do it right. Instead of trying to piece it together. Is that cool with all of you if I bug you again down the road?

No, man, thats not cool. These people put a lot of hard work into telling you what to build and you are just gonna wait? The audacity...Heh i kid. But dont wait too long, at some point you just gotta buy, unless you're waiting to have more money for the system. Dont get roped into the "but i'm waiting for the next big thing" game, or you'll never end up buying a system.

Oh yeah, I know you're kidding, and I do really appreciate all of your help. The reason I am waiting is the money. I could buy a new piece every two weeks or do the whole thing in one swoop in a couple of months.

Trust me I want the best possible thing I can get, but I know how fast it all gets outdated.

My mobo is capable of doing RAID 0 of non identical drives. but the storage capacity is limited to the lowest capacity and speed which is really pointless but it does work.

That's odd I have two different drives too a 160 and a 250. They do operate at the 160 gb but they have never run as smooth as when I had the two 160s of the same brand.

It's around the $1500-1600 range.
Why the western digital hdd's??? aren't the Seagate's and Samsung's still better???
Vista has proven to be most efficient at 4gb of ram so double up that 2x1gb and you will be golden
