well first i would like to say this is a great site pack full of great info. i have been reading and reading and reading, you know lurking around for the past week or so and i must say, this site seems to have alot of friendly good knowlegdable people willing to help out and share their experiences. turly an awsome site.
alrighty then, this is what i am thinking about getting, will more than likely order everything today. keep in mind i such a greenhorn when it comes to building a computer. i did do lots of research and think i have the best bang for my buck. i want the computer for fast everyday use, accessing data, playing with some pics type stuff. no tv video/bluray stuff, but yes with some good gaming capabilities of course.

i am not sure if should go this way or get a Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale processor. i do want to upgrade to dual graphics cards aswell as upgrade the processor later along with adding another velociraptor. or maybe i should just think about adding another 8800gt and leave it at that for a few years then just get a new computer at that time.
thanks in advance for any and all remarks/advice/info ect..ect..ect..
