Finally, when I said "relatively modern games", I should have said games that are about a year old or more. I may buy games that tell me the recommended system specs are that of a system just a step or two behind mine.

Oh that must've sucked for a few seconds!

Looks good. The only thing is the graphics card. You should just get something better instead of upgrading, since I see no point there for that. I can see that baby overclock well now. Nice budget!

Why not pickup a cheap SATA hard drive and get rid of those two IDE barracudas?

Since he has two slots for IDE, I think he would like to fill it up either way.

That is how I would think.

Oh, no. Not a Caviar. I absolutely refuse to deal with that again.

The reason is first, I'm on a budget. 2nd, I already have the SATA 250GB Barracuda on the Wish List. And 3rd, I just wanna have 3 HDD's for the first time evar (for the price of one!). I know SATA's faster, but I don't really NEED it to be all that fast. It's more of a want. And if I don't get what I truly want, then so be it.

But regarding the video card, I'm trying to get the best for my money now so I can have everything that I want to have in my system without sacrificing something, such as that sound card, or one of the optical drives. I'd much rather upgrade later.

I'm just thinking a 40gb hard drive will be filled up really quickly with music, games, etc.

Depends on 5Cheese though, and he just explained himself.
