it's a nice set-up you have Jayvon, but I saw that you pulled out of availability hehe. Well, I'm stuck on Ram and a Hard drive. There are so many different kinds of ram and I'm looking at the DDR2 800 ones but there's the timing and the ability to overclock, and I'm just stuck. Then with the Hard drive I'm looking at 2 different ones:

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

Is there much difference between the two? if not then I'll just go with the cheaper Western Digital. I also decided to go back to the Asus P5W Motherboard. Is there anything in particular that I should be looking for in Ram, because I feel totally lost when seraching through them. I just look at the timings and people's comments on them. Can anyone suggest some good ram?
