despite being very good, this would be very costly and at the moment is not required by anything.
Actually it's only 2 TB being made with 4 hdd

It's dependant on alot of things, memory doesnt affect peformance that much. Mainly on pixel pipelines, core speed, memory interface, memory speed.

well i guess it's a good thing that it's going to take a while to build it, because by the time I make it, the 7800's probably will reach 512 mb's anyway

Your motherboard doesn't support SLI, even though it can be modded to. For the sake of simplicity get the DFI Lanparty UT nF4 SLI-DR ~ $178. Don't get the DFI Lanparty nF4 SLI-DR (there really is a difference) since its $198 and isn't necessary.

4x500...holy crap wtf???? ok looks better....honestly with 64 bit systems coming out i wouldnt go too crazy, but if you want that right now and can afford it then go for it.

even with 2x74 raptors and 2x400 gig seagate, what the hell are you gonna put on there???? do people really watch movies on computer screens???

def go for the 7800gtx, right on, whats the cost right now for that setup?

2ys, so you plan on buying a little at a time? which if you did doesnt make sense, cause prices would drop and new technology comes out, so best to save your money and buy all at once...

well, right now, i got no choice but to watch stuff on my screen bcuz let's just say i'm not the one to listen to authority.......
Anyway, I was planning on using 1 of the raptors for my boot drive and the other 3 for storage. (Obviously, only the stuff I want fast access 2 will go on the raptors.) I mean I just got the computer im using right now 2 weeks ago and I have a 250 gig hard drive. Once it was formatted, it only had 232 gigs left and right now with Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, GTA: Vice City, and MOHAA on my computer and i'm currently @ 218 gigs. So the point I'm trying to make is files are getting bigger and I want to have plenty of storage......

Also, the reason why I said within 2 years is because that's about when i'll be able to afford it. But your probably right, buy it all at once
which is probably what I will end up doing anyway because as was mentioned earlier in the post, some stuff will be obselete by the time I build it.

Cost: $4,192.25 USD
