Well. I plan to use it for gaming. However, not extreme gaming for 10 hours a day. I plan maybe 1, 2 or 3 hours daily, or soemtimes never. I plan to use the internet, download music, listen to music, download bittorrent files of movies and series. Ect.

don't go with a maxtor hdd i don't trust them. seagate or WD but out of the 2 i'd pick WD. also if i were you i wouldn't get an asus socket 939 board they are rumoured to be very buggy. other than that pretty good.

Don't get Maxtor .... they suck go for the Seagate ones .....

Looks like you'll use it for games .... Nvidia is the BEST way to go!
6600GT, 6800GT or even a 7800GTX

You wont get far with 512 MB of RAM ..... get 512 X 2 = 1024
You can run it in dual channel

Also I'd opt for OCZ or GeiL RAM!

still looks all right .....

Okay .... your a downloader?

Get a 80 GB Seagate (for Windows and install files)

Then for all your media stick it on a seprate 200+ GB one

I say put it on a seprate because of HDD failure or reformat!

Okay, you burn to DVD?

I prefare it on HDD .... easier to access and faster speeds.

You don't D/L them huge DVD image files do you? (4 GB+?)

I use to do that .... I stick with DivX.
