That is wayyyy expensive, and you'll never use 400gigs.For normal everyday use, that's overkill =)

God, only $3,000 to play with?!?!??! Whoa, first of all, I would scrap the Pentium D and Intel all together. Use the top of the line Athlon X2 4800+ Toledo core instead. Let me get you a config...

Come on BigLu, let's see what we can make for her...

Just get one 200gb hard drive. It's more than enough and you'll save $130 for something nice.

wait up.. dont forget this is australian dollars so ye and also.. trust me i will probably end up using all that HDD space. i currently have a 320G HDD and ive used 290G... thats all movies, music, programs, work etc etc plus i reckon having 400G would be pretty cool lol

why should i change the cpu? are AMD's better then Pentiums?

Now THAT is a gaming computer. But she doesn't need one. Haha, I don't think the 7800 GTX will be needed...I'm sure a 6600 GT will do.

Haha, I thought since she had all that money to spend, might as well spend it in style. But you know what though? I would love to build me that system. I have about $2000 to spend right now and simply can't make up my mind whether to go with the build or not.
