Yea i'm getting the parts you listed, I noticed the combos isn't there anymore, but its the Asus m4a79xtd evo for 119.99 motherboard right? I saved the item/model numbers for everything, so i'll just buy it all separates. there are still rebates on most of them. and i think it will be a great system for what i need. So the 64 bit version of windows. whats the limit on it? for ram

I just want to mention that Newegg is so awesome, that if you talk to a representative , he/she will most likely honor the expired combo deal. It's worth a try.

The 4gb RAM should be more than enough , but you could always get another 4 if you really want. It won't help you with gaming though.

right now, games just dont benefit from huge amounts of ram. (well, thats the best explanation i can give you anyway >.< )

even some real demanding games like crysis or gta4 only recommend 2 or 2.5gigs of ram.
