Default build/upgrade complete! thank you!

hey guys,
been a while since i posted, but my build/upgrade project was done, and i have been playing a LOT of far cry 2 and cod-waw.
was just writing in this thread to thank you guys for all your help.
in the end, i bought the gtx 260 core 216, the coolermaster 690, and a new 750W psu.
i have learned one important lesson from my experience - dont buy dells haha. my old had a mirrored motherboard (everything was inverted) and so i couldnt put it in a new case, so in the end i was forced to buy a new motherboard, but what is done is done. i am very very happy with my computer! and i cant thank you guys enough! thanks a bunch!

PS: any good games i can play? i got stuck in farcry 2 at the 88% bug, so that was the end of that. and i finished codwaw, the multiplayer is....ok....repetitive. any suggestions?

Well, Bioshock doesn't like to run off a copied disc. It will install, but when it does a CD check to start the game, you'll get that error.
