So if I want to add another Radeon HD 4870 I could? And by itself it's already comparable to the nVidia card I had, ya?

I also removed the 10k drive and just put two 7.2k's and I'll set that up as a raid 1 (that's the redundancy raid ya? is it supported by the mobo i chose?)

I'd also have to choose Vista 64-bit to take advantage of 8 gigs of ram, ya?

Thanks again for the help guys. I really appreciate it.

  1. Grab dual-platter 640Gb drives. Faster gooooood.
  2. I'm not quite sure why you'd want to spend a huge $136 on a keyboard (assuming you use the mail in rebate!) which is, at best, not ideal for gaming and, at worst, is going to screw up your gaming.

    Single platter and small=good, unlike this.... ah person... that thinks dual plaltter= win
  4. I think youve made an absolutely massive foul-up with this system and would ditch all of your plans immediately....

    You only ordered 1 OKGEAR Sata cable - disaster.
