About the hard disk, I think 160GB is enough. Which one should I get?

Either a Western or Seagate. Preferably a Seagate 7200.10

OK, I've decided to go with one of these monitors. Just pick one and tell me why it is the best.

I decided to go with the wide screen monitors. The link was all the wide screen monitors on that website.

I'll tell you, I'm drooling when I see the 226BW, but..no can do.

I'll go with the 931Bw It sound great and more budget like.

I checked to see if there is the memory you suggest the balistix, and it's not.

This is a link for the 1024MB 800MHZ memory cards that I found in this website which includes alot of Israel hardware for computers. As I understand it, the memory should be built from 2 sticks of 1024MB and should have 800MHz, so this is what I can buy.

Lets put it this way, using a widescreen monitor is like when you go watch movies to the movie theater.

BTW: Some games that you play in widescreen monitor give you advantage in terms of more visibility like WoW for example.
