Dell 2407W - 747$

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

i would go with ddr2 800 ram....might as well since ur spending so much. but...its pretty darn similar to what im building lol.

I would suggest going with ddr2 800 or higher by corsair, crucial, kingston, or pny for your ram. Also, go with Asus or BFG for your gpu. Change your dvd drives to light-on, nec, or plextor and get 2 dvd burners (unless you are getting the plextor as they are expensive). You might want to consider more hdd space. Go with 2.1 speakers unless you can take full advantage of the 5.1 by putting speakers behind you. Extra cooling if your are going to overclock might not be a bad idea. It is very similar to the AMD system I am building. Good luck.

I thought XFX xtreme is overclocked and is better than BFG EVGA or other ...
What are the advantages of ASUS or BFG orver XFX??

Thanks

That corsair is good. Many people I know have had problems with XFX cards. BFG has a great waranty and Asus is a very reliable company. Evga is not bad either but I would go with Asus or BFG.
