You don't actually need 8gb of RAM, threw it in since it's so cheap. But you can grab a 4gb kit instead and use the $25 savings to upgrade HD to a 1tb Spinpoint F3 if you want more HD space.

This is assuming you don' t need OS. If you need an OS too, then it'll be a bit trickier to do.

For many companies this is true, hence why I only recommend ones that actually do work.

EVGA and XFX have built their reputations upon their quality of service, hence they're fine.
