You should have gotten an Antec PSU. Buying a DFI and a 3200+ i sjust plain dumb, you should have gotten the FX 55. You should have gotten atleast 200GB of Seagate.

sorry, i dont have $800+(which would be a waste of money since i only play c-s 1.6 and that will be the only game i'll ever play(probably source once 1.6 is gone) for a cpu, and i dont need over 80 gigs of hard drive, trust me. i haven't bought anything yet, im buying on monday.

You should really consider getting a bigger hard drive. It's not that much more plus you'll be allowing yourself for future programs/games/music/video/etc.

if it's as good as Corsair then go for it...I certianly don't have any complaints about my Corsair RAM. Some would say that there are better brands. I think it's a matter of opinion.

Honestly, I don't know. Personally, I'd stick with the big names like Corsair, Kingston, OCZ. Also, you should consider getting a better PSU with around 12V@28A .
