I was going to give you suggestions, but when I saw the $1500 total, I'm just going to design you the PC. There is so much wrong with your "ultimate gaming computer."

Note: This is about as good as it gets. The ONLY way that this can be improved upon is by upgrading the videocard, for which you'll need to cut corners, a lot, elsewhere.

Case – Thermaltake Tsunami - $109.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133132

Processor – AMD Opteron 165 Denmark - $325.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103588

Motherboard – MSI K8N Diamond Plus - $195.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130037

Memory – G.Skill Extreme Series DDR500 - $157.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231021

Hard Drive(s) – 250GB Seagate Barracuda SATA150 - $86.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148065

Videocard – BFG GeForce 7900GT PCI-E - $329.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143048

Soundcard – Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic - $122.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102188

Power Supply – Antec TruePower 2.0 550W - $100.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103932

Optical Drive(s) – LG Black CD/DVD Burner - $38.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136063

Floppy Drive – Samsung Black Floppy - $7.

Wow, that rig Greenradiance built you is far better than the one you made. Except, I would get the DFI Ultra-D motherboard because it OC's very well and is way cheaper:

You could OC the **** out of that computer.
500th post!!!!!

first of all 2 GB is all you will need. 4 GB actually slows your computer down at times..too much memory for XP to handle.

Dual core is the future...its a good investment
