Get the 1TB.....

For the same price I'll take the 250 extra gigs over the box.

EDIT: That 1TB drive is now a deactivated item.

I agree with aspire.comptech on getting a full tower. I guess mid is okay if you put it together and never touch it again. But I have been opening up my computer so many times in the last few months that I can't stand my mid tower case. Its just to cramped and I worry that I'm going to break something trying to squeze things in.

is it worth the extra money to get the 8800gts over the 8800gt? and if so, which one is the best for the money? im looking to get a card that is factory overclocked.

Nah, the antec 900 is a great case if you are a set it and forget it type. I'm probably going to get rid of mine just because i need a bigger case for all of the crap i'm putting in it.

is it better to get retail or oem processors? seems to be that oem's are cheaper, but does it affect the performance?
