That shows empty for me, I don't think we will be able to view that. I would recommend buying most everything at once though. That way if there is a limited warranty that only lasts a few months on something, and you get that first than months later when you go to build it that item doesn't work you won't be screwed and have to buy a new part. Post the separate links to everything, or just type out what you're looking at.

lol yeah, make a new thread. Andrew, wow that must be expensive as **** lol. Definitely a good system though. That will all work together and will be amazing. If you are running vista with all that high performance hardware, I might reccomend 4 gigs of ram instead of 2. Up to you though

Yea im going to get 4 just didnt want to past it twice.. I hope it is... Im just afraid of getting some parts that dont clash well or something.. Like ram not working with processor and junk like that. And i was curios if the processer is going to be suitable. Or if i can get a better one for a small amount of extra money because there are alot of processors and im kinda confused...

And.. Actualy i really dont even plan on using vista... I like xp much better

64bit xp will recognize 4gigs but 2 gigs is plenty with xp, and if you have 32bit xp then be sure to get only 2gigs.
