64 bit lets the computer use more than 3.5 gigs of RAM

32 bit is max 3.5 gigs (counting gpu)

If you have Ultimate, you should have 64-bit. Ultimate comes with a 32-bit and a 64-bit disk (at least, the retail version does).

However, even if you have 32-bit, I still recommend 4GB or RAM. RAM is dirt cheap, and even if the 32-bit version only uses 3.something GB, it's still better than 2GB . Plus, you can upgrade to 64-bit later.

Check the online deals section of this forum when you go to buy your processor. Lately, there have been some short term sales on Q6600 processors as low as $189 at a few sites. That would be the one you want like Chozart said.

Just and FYI, all the LED fans, cathodes and flashy design get real old, real fast. They are fun for the first month or two, but after that they get annoying. They get coated in dust and it becomes quite unsightly.

I personally hate them because it makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to sleep with my computer on. I usually turn it off at night anyways, but even if it was relatively quiet the case still becomes an LED Lantern of color.

I've heard that they can burn out really fast on cheaper cases too...so you might want to be aware of that.

"older style" hdd cable = IDE
"newer style" = Serial-ATA (SATA)

If you're on a budget, I wouldn't worry about it. Pretty much all motherboards can go either way these days.

those cases look pretty sweet, however I don't think that they'll have the best airflow around. But it's hard to get worse than an OEM case

the 8600 series is probably your best bet for a relatively inexpensive graphics card.
