I don't really care about the long run, this will probably be my last computer for gaming, then it's into the world to start my career.

What's the benefit of having that hard drive?

Also, I read a guide on this forum saying that "Value RAM=Performance RAM" in terms of normal ordinary things. So, I was thinking of switching back to that OCZ ram I originally posted, but getting two of them. Is it possible to have two dual 512ram kits? That mobo has 4 ram slots.

If your overclocking, spend what you have. There are sticks for 40 bucks all the way up to 3500 bucks. The more expensive, the better the overclocks. But if not over clocking, go with some valueselect or something. Remember:
Performance: Cheap RAM = Expensive RAM
Oveclockability: Expensive RAM > Cheap RAM

**NOTE** More will be explained about overclocking later
So is it possible then? to run two dual channel 512 ram kits?

Wait, to save space, I found a 2x 1gb dual channel kit for the same price as two x2 512mb dual channel kits.
