  1. Best answer
    Looks good.
    However,go with a 32MB cache HDD because 8MB is significantly slower.
    As for mouse,well there are many better options such as many Logitech/Razer mice.
    If you are on budget,consider Logitech MX518
  2. ram is just stupid - get matched pairs your only going to have issues if you dont

    motherboard - gigabyte or asus, i wouldnt buy anything else, ESPECIALLY MSI
  3. Yes I forgot about the RAM.
    Instead of getting 10GB of mixed RAMs, get 4GB(or 8GB if you have many image/video editing projects opened at the same time)
  4. Spend the extra few bucks and get the 1GB GTX 460; all the reviews say it REALLY pays off. I had the 1 GB models and loved them (SLI).
