Who gave you that advice? I suggest
1.) Change the processor to either a 3200+ Venice or a 3700+ San Diego. The 3200+ can easily be overclocked to 3800+ speeds, much less 3500+. And if you go with the 3700+, its MUCH better than the 3500+ without overclocking.
2.) Get a MSI motherboard, I believe there is one avaliable for a similar price.
3.) Do you really need that much Hard Drive space? I suggest buying the Hard Drives (and everything else, for that matter) from www.Newegg.com
