Do I need extra wires or something? Now I'm debating if I should just use the old hard drive and dvd drive to save $...

I noticed you don't listen very well but I'm going to try anyways.

First off you said you want to be able to play crisis and have this build be future proof. A 4830 is not going to play crisis very well. What resolution/size is your monitor? 8gigs of memory will not make your rig futureproof. It will make it have a useless amount of ram. For your gfx card get atleast a 4850 and only 4gb of ram.

Here is a much better build

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1265-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer Dell Upgrade PPCS500D 500W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - G.SKILL HK 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TPower I45 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit for System Builders - Operating Systems

Total before tax & shipping: $926.92 - $45 MIB = $881.92

I will have this monitor:
Newegg.com - Acer X223Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2500:1 - LCD Monitors

I will overclock my card to 4850, but is 4 gigs really that fast? Theres really just a 5-10 dollars change in price compared to a 2x2 and a 2x1, so if 4 gigs really is enough, I guess I'll just get a 2x2 since it's cheaper?

You can't measure GB in speed when it comes to ram. Ram is space for the CPU to store textures and instructions and a bunch of different stuff for quick access. Its a combination of the amount of space (4GB is plenty for everything except HD movie editing and 3D CAD work) and the speed of the ram.

See my last post for a much better build than what you have.

+1 on pinschers build.

But, I think this would be a little more future proof for like the exact same price.

cpu + mobo combo.

I swear I'm not amd fanboy! It's just I think these savings are really hard to pass up.
