The parts your friend picked out are okay but they don't let you truly overclock the allendale picked out to it's fullest. Trust us when we say overclock becuase now-days its completely safe.
Here's what I suggest off the top of my head
Case: Centurion 523
Video Card: 8800GT 512
Mobo: P35 DS3L
PSU: Rosewill RP500
RAM: 2x1Gb Crucial Ballistix
Add the size of hard drive you want and your choice of optical drive
yea ive heard about people not wanting to game on vista but whats the problem? vistas the new thing out right shouldnt it be the best for g aming i mean wouldnt u want the new best working updated thing rather than XP which is kinda gettin outdated? is there problems with vista i thought i heard there were some minor problems but as far as i understand it still works but i dont know that much lol so yea....
umm how much would those parts u put down there up to cost to? if it stays under a 1000 i think i might go with what your sayin if it works ill have to check out the parts im gonna search them now
