You need to slipstream sp2 into your xp disk, thats why its only seeing 127gb. Or you could just make a 30gb partition for the OS then patch and partition the other 170gb of the hard drive. Also, that stock overclock on the bfg card is heinous. Crank that baby up to the the stats in my sig

That builds going to be absolutely awesome, and even better when you get the PC2-6400 RAM at christmas. Though, if it were me, I would have gone for the Kingston Hyper-X now, rather than later.
