yeah 520 corsair would be fine, and the pioneer sata dvd drives are good i hear. also why not get two seagate 320gb's and raif them, instead of an 80 an a 500?

all I can say is dont get a cheap microsoft keyboard. Dish out the 58 bucks and get a G11, the macros help wonders in RPG and RTS games particularly, and the lights look cool. The LCD in the G15 is virtually useless imho, but u can get that for 72 bucks.

In my opinion, i would prefer getting a Dell. They are so cheap and make reliable machines. They also have AWESOME support... And i would get a 15 inch monitor instead of a 28 because the res is better than 1080p on the 15...and why get the stacker? you should just get some 20 buck mini tower case which can handle an ultra in it and still have room for more gfx cards. An E6750 or Q6600? We have long agreed that P4's are better. And an 8800gts....pfffft.....you're better off onboard. That card is terrible! And why get a tuniq tower? Just use an air conditioner for cooling. Put your pc right next to an air conditioner and I'm sure you can overclock to 4 easily... If you do get the 15 inch i would get something like an 8800ultra just to make sure it can handle the res, 2560x1600. Seems like everything is good, but you need to change and get a Dell.


LOL Looks good, mate. I would make the tough decision of the two processors by finding out what applications you use and how many applications can be used.
