I have a Raptor now, I am barely using 10GB. I have never used more than 20GB. I am stingy, I delete everything I can.

When I get the money I will upgrade to another Raptor and RAID 0.

I just bought one of those $136 Raptors for my old rig. I wanted all retail stuff on this one (for the warrenties and such). So I had to get the more expensive one.

humm.... i dont like that watercooling!!
if you want to choose that one i will go with a si-120 which will be about the same @ $65
and the video card i would go with a 7800 gt and X1800xl those are about $300 right now and if you go aircooling you would have more to spend on the video card. i think even x840 is around $250

I'd get a DVDRW instead of a combo and why are you downgrading the CPU? Unless you intend to put the new 630 in your old rig and keep your current 650.

Im going from a 3.4Ghz 32bit 1MBL2 to 3.0 GHz 64bit 2MB L2! That no downgrade because the 630 will easily OC to 4Ghz+ with the water cooling.

Noted. I will stick with one raptor for now, because that is a very easy upgrade in the future. I may go for one of those 7800GTs on newegg.com for $290.
