The the Antec 900, P35-DS3R, and Corsair 450VX is a winning combination.
Thanks! At least I'm doing something right!

The 8800GTX is worth it, if you can afford it. If you're tight on the budget, just stick with the GTS and upgrade to a mid-range 9 series, later.
Hmm, When do you think the 8800GTX is going to go obsolete? Like when i wont be able to turn most of the new games to full graphics? Well, I guess thats not obsolete, it's just a little old.

The 8800GTX will stick around for years, before it's obsolete. Probably 1-3 years.

You can try selling it, if you want to. Just hope the buyer doesn't come after you, once he/she finds out, the power supply crapped out on them.

Looks good, but I thought you were staying with the GTS....because with the GTX, you may meed a more powerful power supply.

Also get the 7200.10 model Seagates. They're much faster.

Ok, thanks I'm going to change it back to the 8800GTS, and get the 7200.10 model.

When will the 8800GTS be obsolete type deal?

I'd give them a year or two. So don't worry. By that time, you'll be wanting to upgrade.

Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate everyones help. After i order all of this, I'll try to learn to over clock my things. And I'll try to install everything into my computer by myself, but if i run into trouble I'll go to my bro first, then if he says no, I'll google for help, but then I'll come here, I think I've already asked too many questions.

Yea, I'm learning, about high tech PC's I've put together and taken apart DOS, and old computers in that age...

But, Now, I think that's the set up I'm going to get. But i have one more question.

My house has a wireless internet router, would i be able to use that with the set up i have picked out right now? Or would i need to have a Ethernet card/cable hooked to my computer?

If you don't have a wireless adapter or antennae for that setup, just connect it to the router, with an ethernet cable.
