I would like the Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB hard drive. But Samsungs make excellent hard drives.

I like Seagate too but I always had good luck with WD and Maxtor.

Well I guess by February or even March when I have the 1500-2k saved up, it will be interesting to see what the prices on the Nvidia 9XXX and Penryrn CPUs will be. I also have decided I'm going to become an overclocker on my next Rig Build =) I read the techie bible and I'll abide by it..... I was toying with the idea of going AMD only because I could get it alot sooner but I'm just gonna wait and save my cash and get the Penryn and new Nvidia instead.

You should build. Dell's are good but overpriced. $1500 right now could get you a really nice system. My budget went from $1400 to $1000, the $1400 was overdoing it for me. The $1000 is plenty of power for me. The extra 400 woulda got me a better video card and cpu, thought it wasn't worth it. My set up is in my signature, total is around $970 not including shipping.
