Do you know what brand RAM that is?
Doesnt 1.2 TB hard drive space seem kinda overkill? Unless your gonna RAID1 them or have like 10billion music files .

How can you have 1.2TB of stuff? Do they like copy all of their movies onto their computer or what? I dont even use half of my 120GB hard drive, and my brother shares it with me.

I know ive got a 100gig and have 2 OS's and dont even use it all (although if i was to copy all my dvds and downloaded content onto a HDD i would easily go over 1TB guess i just burn and delete more) but these people have like a permanent internet connection so constantly downloading as well as ripping absolutely everything in their video store. So all that starts to add up over time.

But still pretty ridiculus. And if there was a HDD failure you would lose heaps and heaps of data.

Do not listen to the 2 x 7800 GTX 256 meg card suggestion. SLI only offers 20% in increase yet you are paying for 100% new card. Just buy one uber card such as the 7800 GTX 512 meg?

Below you will see SLI = Garbage
