well do you really need the 250 gigs of hd space you could save a lot of money by getting a smaller hd. and maybe upgrade the cpu.

yeah, i that hd IS really good, but still id rather go for an 80 gigs if you dont have the money now and invest it into something you cant upgrade any other day like a graphics card or a cpu.

well if you press add to cart on that processor it will give you an option to pick a combo, and from there you can select (or not select) one of the combo rams. and it will add the reduced price to your total

the middle one is TWINX1024-3200C2PRO the bottom one is TWINX1024-3200C2PT maybe you can find the difference at corsair.com, but as far as i know they are basically the same and any difference will probably be too small to notice..then again.

VM, is virtual memory. What virual memory does, is it, acts as ram on the hard drive. But obviously as ram is right there on the mobo, and alot easier to access, its alot faster then taking the data, and writing to the hard drive, and then, deleting from the hard drive, all as its still doing normal hard drive things like loading stuff.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_memory

way better explination..
