On 2nd thought, i think i'll go with a different case to save some money. I think the Centurion 5 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119068 might be a good choice. it just kind of crampy O_O

So are you going with the GTS? I think the 320 version is pretty weak and you should get a 640 version or just get a GTX.

Agreed w/ redsox, the 640 version doesn't cost that much more, just get that

The last thing you want to have to do is get a brand new gfx card later on because you tried to save $20 today.

Skip your next trip to McDonalds, or whatever vice you have to cover the 5.15. Note potential savings - a single 8800gts640 would do pretty well for much less money, and there could be case/psu savings. I wouldn't recommend skimping too much on a case in this class of PC, as your video card(s) will genrate a lot of heat, making multiple vents and extra 120mm fans more than important.

I am Getting a GTS 640mb.

and

@mariogreymist =
I need alot of HDD space, so that Raptor wont work for me. Also, if you consider Tax for California, that budget will go above $1500, probably somewhere around $1,650.

Edit: Furthermore, I'm getting a E4300 instead of the E6600, because i'm planning to switch off to Q6600 when it price drop to $266 dollars. I think the E4300 will keep me going for 2-3 months, I might learn how to OC it too.

You have to settle somewhere with a budget. Heck, I'll sell my 17" samsung cheap for a little savings on a decent monitor.

Well, if you want to do hardcore gaming, you are better off with a smaller, faster hdd. And if you are waiting for the Q6600, why not just wait altogether? If the 8900's are out, you may get a GTX in the same pricerange as a GTS640 today. Not only will you save the CPU money you spend today, only to buy a new one in 3-4 months, but you also will be able to get more bang for your buck in RAM & HDD as well as with the GPU.

You give me something to think about, but i'm quite impatient since i've been saving money for a new computer for 2 years now...^^ but if i do need a faster HDD for gaming, i still going to need the other 2 HDD for Raid +1. SO, i'll just go and buy an addition Raptor.
