Well I might overclock if I need a performance boost in the future and I think I might get this for 37 bucks extra (It would be only 10 but rebate expires today and I don't have the $$ right now.)

OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Unbuffered Dual

Also which Hard drive is better?

or

Is SATA with 8MB cache faster then ATA150 with 16MB cache?

they are both sata. the first one just says serial ata which is sata lol

i heard some ppl say the 16MB cache is better...but its maxtor. and i dont trust maxtor. but if you trust maxtor you should get the maxtor one. im not sure about sata2 seems like a lot of ppl dont like that WD one.

Wow, I looked at all the 7200RPM 16MB and only the 200+GB have it, and most of them are Maxtor, I saw a WD but it's like 30 extra bucks. What about this:

^^^^^^^^^^
