    That would be fine and run most (if not all) games on max. Have you bought the system yet?
  2. Looks like a decent build, pick up a decent cooler to keep that little furnace cool. Also, if you can squeeze an SSD into your budget, you will be much happier with your build. Maybe drop one of your mechanical drives and put that money towards a 120GB SSD.
  3. If you havent bought your system yet some questions:
    whats your budget?
    do you want an SLI/Crossfire upgrade path?
    Do you want the option of overclocking?

    wouldn't the first 1TB be ok for os and games
    since I'm going to use the other 1TB For school and Fraps
    plus wouldn't the SSD get filled pretty quick since it's a 120GB
