You need to get a 64bit OS, otherwise you'd only see 3gb of RAM in your PC

Plus an operating system (Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit) and you're good to go. Also, perhaps the larger hard drive they recommended? Vista alone takes up close to 20GB of space, and most new games that install on your system will take about 6-10GB themselves.

Although the TT armor is a great case, I have one myself, it is very heavy. Maybe look around at some more cases and find a lighter one? It's more of a personal preference thing but having a heavy case can be a pain if you have to do any work on it.

And about the vista/game issue, it's old news IMO. I have been running Vista for over a year now and haven't had any problems with games since like the first month or two I had it.
