I appreciate ur input. its gotten me thinking and exposed to many new products and new information.

i really dislike OEM's because i am known for getting (computer) virus's around my neighborhood (yeah its bad, im learning though) so im really going to need a full product. /facepalm
My friend gave me an extra win7 professional 32bit and that is the reason why i choose to get the win7 Ultimate 64bit Upgrade.

Thank you and keep them coming!!

For gaming and video editing you need a good GPU, making raid 0 won't give you much performance... Again, I would buy a powerful gpu now, the 5850 it's a lot more powerful than 5770, and one HDD and buy the second one when I get more money and reformat to make the raid 0 setup.

wtf are you talking about lol?

the full version of windows isn't going to stop your computer from getting infected.

were you running an anti-virus app in your previous system?

ok, but the fact that it's oem or full has nothing to do with preventing you from getting a virus, i'm not quite sure what your thinking was there.

i personally use microsoft security essentials.

No i mean i thought oem meant like a 1 time use and if u happened to get a virus (which i tend to get b/c i go to naughty sites and dl wierd stuff without a virus-scanner) i would have to get another oem. BUT oem doesnt mean what i thought so im just really bad at life. god ****** im awkward.

thanks for the microsoft security essentials link, im dl'ing and using it now and its blinking at me, saying my computer is at risk.... GAHHHHHHH fml.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
But yes, i am missing a GPU. Im still fumbling between the 5770, 5850, and 5870. I am considering my budget, but i am also considering about future proofing this rig so, if i need to, i can get another 57xx or 58xx and crossfire them. I might need a new PSU but everything else can probably stay in. I understand that im only playing wow, cod, l4d2, but im also thinking of future games i might be interested that require more from the gpu. Ill have to keep researching.

Id like to ask, what brand should i go with when it comes to the 57xx or 58xx? From what i know, the major brands are xfx, his, and sapphire. In my current rig im using the sapphire 2600xt (yeah really old stuff here) and so im pretty sure ill be doing number 1 in my pants when i get this rig.

And 1 more thing. Ive been looking at the 5870 and i see very different prices. One goes for 399.99, another for 429.99, and last goes for 509.99. The only difference i see in the specs are the effective memory clock. Does increasing that, even a sliver, really change the value this much? And would i need that much of a performance boost for future games? I imagine cross-firing would do it justice, especially with a 5870.

Newegg.com - 5870

Anyways, thanks for reading this wall of blob. Anxiously waiting for some replies
-Kaz

Ps. 750w is enough to run this correct? Im still a noob at picking the right psu, but ill be learning it hopefully soon, via google!
