True, but you dont need expensive ram, definitely need Dual Channel, if your not going to OC, pick any of these companies its all good.

Corsair, Crucial, OCZ, G.Skill.

Hard drives are incredibly cheap these days. Don't get less than 60 GBs. Maybe a 250 GB one for around 90 bucks.

You can get away with a 36GB raptor as your system Hard drive ($103) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144200 for your OS and a couple games. The 74GB raptor is $50 more, But it has twice the storage.

Then you will need a 2nd hard drive for storage, (250GB $89) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144417

You can use any hard drive as your system hard drive, The WD raptors are fast, If you want Windows and your games to load 30 seconds+ faster then get a WD raptor as your system HDD, If you don't care about 30 seconds, just get 1 250GB HDD for you computer.

The down side of The raptor HDDs...
Serial ATA150(big flat gray cable)
they run hot
they cost allot
