but then i thought to myself this is going to EXPENSIVE so i decided against that.
so i was thinking maybe a Dual Core And a Mobo that works with DDR2 RAM (8gig) I would LOVE that sound card but I'm looking at a New case cuz my old antec isn't working as well XD but yeah anything how ever much it is. I need a new gaming PC...
i wanted the 2x Samsung Spinpoint F1 1.0 TB and like 2 300 gig velicroraptor? w/evz it's spelted thanks guys! =DD
ohh thats on nasty rig and yes it will if you motherboard can take DDR2 lol by the looks of theses OCZs they are DDR3 9goes and checks ) that should be a sweet machine hope you got good cooling if your thinking of overclocking...
raptors ay nice I didn't know they was at 300Gb, and I bet they cost alot as well.
personally i would but em in a raid, no bottlenecks that way after the computer has been in opeartion for a while (months) but thats just me.
As for case you will need alot of room because of the X2s so i would say you would want a antec 800 1200 will be better or the thermaltake armor or there better version which is about the same but is better looking.
LOL it's for Bittorrent and stuff i'm going to be setting up ... Photoshop editing so forth and 8 gigs DDR2 ram is cheap so it's best to get now u know? but don't worry i wasnt being mean when i posted the first paragraph XD but yeah so what u think best? besides my friend bought that and i thought he was insane too XD
Yeah, well - insanity is a good word for spending money on something that won't be used.
If your only going to be playing with torrents and some photoshop, then go the way of conservation. Find yourself something buget friendly. I mean, you can grab a wolfdale for near $100 now. Toss in 2x1GB of 8500 (DDR2 1066 if you didnt know) for another $50 and you've won half the battle.
250GB Barracuda's are less than $50 a piece. 2 of those should be more than enough. A nice little striped (0) configuration would be great for speed and save some green.
Not sure if you plan on playing any games, or what operating system you plan on using. XP? Unix? - 2GB RAM. V*sta = 4GB RAM.
Otherwise you can go something low profile and make this easier than usual.

8 gigs of ram is basically overkill in almost all situations. I would stick to 4gigs of DDR2 and then upgrade later to DDR3 when prices drop and when your system might actually utilize the ram.
^Well. Nehalem isn't going to be too expensive. Should be only about $700 for CPU + motherboard. Which is well with in the budget.
My point is don't drop $4k on a system now. Drop $1.5k max. Get a good PSU, GPU, HDD, and a case (Antec 1200 FTW!) ,may be a good LCD too. Then upgrade to Nehalem from another 6 months. You can have a VERY good system for $1.5k. You can reuse PSU, GPU etc, and case on the Nehalem build.
