don't get the Corsair 620hx, because the 520hx is the same thing except with the 100watts difference coming from the rails for multiple HD's

get a 7200.11 Hard drive instead of the 7200.10

Tuniq Tower 120 is really loud and difficult to install, try to get a Xigmatech Rifle from Overclockers.co.uk

4gb is usually overkill unless you do CAD or Music Production, but if you're a gamer 2gb is more than enough

nah. it shouldn't be "backed up" or anything.. you could just go with a TRUE if you don't mind tight thumb screws.
