for some reason on a review (forget the name) on some big tracks on Race Driver GRID when the settings are cranked, it cant run it corretcly because it uses the 512MB on te GPU and will corrupt
actually, it was more of the ATI drivers.

like i said go post up here www.bit-tech.net for your water cooling but make sure you tell them your in the US because its a UK site. and rohan if he has the money for a GTX280 then thats a good choice considering hes getting a triple SLI motherboard. so in a while he can eventually SLI his GTX's. i totally forgot about the PSU.

heres a good future proof PSU

if you arent going to do extreme OC, then air cooling will do fine. If you are going to slightly OC, then stock air cooling will be fine. Or if you are going to do some decent OC, then get an aftermarket HSF.

sound card (though not really needed)
Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy

Transparent Case (The one i want that i cant afford )
NZXT Apollo

You will get a couple of FPS gain in games if you have the soundcard since it has its own Processor so it takes some work off the CPU. But some people dont think $30 is worth the couple FPS

if it was me, i would spend as low as possible if my parents are paying. I dont like people spending over $100 just for me. But thats just me.

I would get the WD Caviar 160GB as my OS and installation, and the Samsung 500GB Spinpoint F1 as back-up.
