You're starting to learn! :surprised: Aha, that's why every time you are at a Tech forum, you'll notice people rather build then buy it pre-built.

I've got a question for you all. Since I have no idea what my budget will be since there are so many unknown variables... What would you recommend me upgrade if I had $200 more?

I was thinking... Either a bigger Hard drive or a better graphics card.

BTW, I'm going to be getting Vista Home Premium instead of XP MCE and I'm probably going to be getting the Antec 900 instead of the rosewill.

Have a bigger HDD isn't necessary. Doesn't have affect on performance. With $200 more, you can upgrade your VGA and Crucial Ballistix.
