IMO, I always thought that at least 1Tb of HD space is the norm for a gaming system, but then again, I guess you could always add another HD if space started to fill up..

You don't need 8 GB of ram. 4 is fine.

This will save you $20: - EVGA 01G-P3-1370-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

If you were going to pay $200, you might as well go for this: - MSI N470GTX-M2D12-B GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

That is what it will run you with the rebate and promo code.
CPU: Intel Core i7 920
Ram: 12GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
Mobo: ASUS P6T
PSU: 750W PC Power & Cooling
