I'm too lazy to change again, since I've already done it like 4 times with RAM and I have the tendency to update everything accordingly each time. So, I guess I can consider my specs final.

Nothing's officially finalized! What? *back to Newegg*

Or could it be because it's SATA? Because I'm planning on going with SATA over IDE.

DO NOT GET THAT HD! Get this 250gb Western Digital hard drive with a 16mb cache for only $110 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144701

I don't need 250GB of storage space. I'm not really a download junkie. My downloads mostly consist of music and small videos.

Edit: That Maxtor is about the lowest priced 160GB SATA on Newegg.

We can compare this to the sound card suggestion brought up earlier. It's a little more luxury for a little more price, but I can't find myself justifying paying that extra price when I'm not really going to benefit from it.

Your computer will be faster becuase the cache is twice the size of the maxtors.
