he said hes only watching video clips on the net. hes not going to need an additional 100GB+ for that.

Surf the Net
Watch Video Clips on the net
Play games (java) on the net
Download NFL, NHL,NBA games via torrent.
Play a couple High End games such as Madden 08', NHL 08', NBA 08', and a few others. But Im not an avid gamer, only a few times a week(if that).
I would also like to have multiple things running at once without lagging.
I also want to be able to upgrade with ease in the future.


I am pretty set in my parts, but if you guys think i messed up on a part i am definitely willing to listen.



Parts are:

You might want to change your CPU to the E6550 that intel came out with. Cheaper and better.
