Thanks Scott and Raphoenix for the help.
Raphoenix, as nice as Raid is, i dont think i'm going to need that much hard drive space, i currently have 160 and has never been full. Although new games take more and more space, do you think i should invest in one more hard drive just in case? Or, should i wait until i see if i'm going to need the extra space?
Scott, yes the dvd burner is currently out of stock, I'm hoping Newegg will get a new shipment in sometime this week (as I'm sure they will). I'm planning on using this new computer as a low-cost gaming machine. I'm also hoping it to be upgradable, so in the future i won't have to spend too much on something that will run the latest and greatest games. For the OS, I'm hoping to get Vista while i currently own XP. Do you think i should get 64-bit or 32-bit, i've heard 32 is more compatible with older programs but only recognizes 3.2gb memory?
About the Core i7 Processor, after getting a i7 motherboard and Processor, the price increase is a minimum of around $300. After doing some research, most PC Games don't even recognize a quad-core's capabilities. I got the impression that i would be fine with a dual core for a few years. Although i would like to max out games (except Crysis) with this computer, do you think this new processor is worth the price? And, with the swift advance in technology, is it worth it to make such a big investment?
A few last questions: Is the power supply going to be big enough? Should i get an SLI Motherboard?
Thanks SO much for the help. This is my first build, I would like it to go smoothly =)
