I wish I had gotten the keyboard when we first started but what can I do, I am trying to get all the stuff figured out before I buy so I can get it all at once and not regret any of it =( Oh well.

I have heard that the 518 mouse is better because it has everything that the 510 has and more because of the ability to switch to higher, same, or lower resolutions. Besides I think it is cool to have a mouse that works really well and looks funky. Everyone says it looks ugly as hell but when they get it out it actually is sleek and smooth but has some kind of holographic stuff to make it look pitted and weird.

No. MX500=MX500. MX510=MX510. MX518=MX518.

MX518>MX510>MX500, just like 18>10>0.

This isn't that hard to understand, you know...

You must be new to this sort of thing... :\
sounds like your saying its the exact same thing

I would really like to thank everyone for all their help, especially PZEROFGH who has been a constant supply of information and help. Also Vaderpro really helped and everyone else. This was a really long thread and I am sorry you all had to look at it for so long. These forums are a great help for people who don't know much but want to learn. Thanks again, I'll send you all fruit baskets lol. Cheers!! I'll write again when I can't put the stupid thing together or when I try to OC it.

Congratz, I still can't believe it took you 11 pages of thread to put that together =/.

Anywayz, yea, post the benchies, from ALL of them .

Overclocking isn't that hard, just read some guides, ask some questions, and it'll be all clear. I'm still learning myself and will probably do my first overclock in a week or so. Maybe I'll do it when school starts on the 8th and rub it in my friends faces

Well when you know absolutely nothing and you are throwing $2000 of your own money at computer parts that you will probably have trouble even putting together you want to be damn sure you are getting exactly what you need. =)
