Ehhh I wouldn't say the 768mb is a waste of money, and it performs almost the same as the 1GB at the resolutions I'm playing at (plus hella cheaper). How exactly is the 2400 pointless? It's $35 cheaper than the 2500K, and I don't plan to overclock, while the 2500 is just $15 cheaper than the 2500k. I still have my 160Gb HDD, and after 7 years, I still haven't used up all of it for an expansion lol. Maybe because all my MS office files are just a few KB, while my games take the most space. 1TB seems to be too much (and expensive), and by the time I will need a new one, maybe 1TB SSDs will be mainstream.
I do see what you mean with 8GB of RAM, it'll probably be "future proof", but my computer never uses more than 1.95GB.
Sorry if I seem like I'm defending myself, I just felt that it wasn't that bad haha...Edited by rockycrsb - 5/30/11 at 6:34pm
