If your going to spend $600 on a 7800GT that's OCed...just get a 7800 GTX, and OC it a bit yourself. Or don't, but $600 for a 7800GT is too much. Don't they retail for like $300 ?

How many hard disk's do you need?
Is Albatron a good brand for the 7800 GT?

*Albatron 7800GTSH "Super High" Geforce 7800GT Overclocked (450mhz), PCI Express, 256mb GDDR3, Dual DVI, SLI* = $600 ...... Is the price just lame .... or should i get a GTX?

Um... that wasn't sarcasm.

Anyways, I wouldn't buy that 7800. Just get a BFG 7800GTX 512MB if you want the best card. But do you even have the money for this stuff?

You only need one hard disk. You can have 2 if you choose. But seriously, you dont seem like you know ANYTHING about computers. I think you should wait a few years but if you are up to it. GO FOR IT!!

Yes, especially when he hardly seems like your typical hardcore gamer.

That site charges you $1,700 for an FX-60.... They should be more like $1,300.
