Looks nice man. Another Q, isn't quad core kinda of a waste right now?

Total for those parts is bout $773.94 so I got bout 100 give or take of some wiggle room. hey for the OS can't I write all the vista files onto a cd and use that, if yes and if you know how can you tell me?

More and more games are starting to use quad cores.

nice, but do u guys know how to copy the os files onto a disk so i can save $100?
I still think that AMD phenom X4 beats all of them, but quad isn't that bad, plus AMD phenom series is on the expensive side...

Yep, you can "Clone" a harddrive, if you buy the SeaGate drive using SeaTools.

Once you find a case, you can determine how many fans it comes with and whether or not you should buy more.
