I would recommend you look into the motherboard, and see if it supports HDDs that are that large. I know some motherboards won't support any HDD over 2TB. You are also missing the case, and DVD/Blu-ray drive, which you need, unless you have you're using your old one

Now is not the time to be buying HDs, especially 3TB ones. You're talking over $450 for a single drive alone. :ouch:  :ouch: 

I'd cut the HD down to a 1TB and invest that money elsewhere - particularly case, PSU, and optical drive or monitor.

Is that instead of the graphics card I have in there already?

thanks might reconsider the hard drive and use the saving to get the better graphics then

Good choices - love the Phantom and the LG Blu Ray burner that I just bought seems to work pretty well for the most part.

I like that choice.
