Wow, that was all really helpful. I had no idea that the 6950 was only $10 more on this site. Good suggestion with the cooler as well. I'm assuming the stock one is garbage if it even comes with one. Regarding the case, I've already purchased it (I know, poor idea purchasing it before the other parts). One more thing, my bud said I need SATA cables for the HD and DVD bc they are "OEM".. Any suggestions?
Thanks a lot for your quick reply. I appreciate the help
