Thanks for the suggestions. A few more q's for you. Do you think it's worth getting Vista x64 or just Vista x86 in terms of compatibility ( heard drivers were a problem)? I might be getting the 4GB . I've heard a few complaints about the Asus, can you tell me why you would go for the Asus over the Gigabyte?
You think the X1950 Pro would be better than 8600GT? I really don't need DX10 I don't think. Right now I got an 80GB HDD and it's almost full. About 20GB is photos and about 100GB is video (which is stored on an external). Any suggestion of a good solid HDD?
