I'm getting my parts from a small computer shop....But I'm not getting them for another 3 weeks or so. I'm thinking of ordering from micro direct now. Are the prices too high?? They seemed OK to me, The only thing cheaper on microdirect was the proccessor which was 30 cheaper....But the delivery costs would probably be quite a bit too....I can't even find the XFX Geforce 6800 GT on microdirect :

I got a better solution for you. Upgrade you mobo to the ASUS A8N-SLi MOBO, so you have PCIe Dual slots. Then, scrap the 6800GT, and get two 6600GT PCIe cards (the same cost) Their combined performance will easily beat that measily AGP 6800GT by itself. Trust me, only like 60 pounds more, do it! Dual SLi graphics pwn! And get that Geil RAM, it is good stuff.

That is not nesscary, that is personal preference, although, Maxtor does lack that strange "skewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww" sound that WD makes... So yes, I agree.

Seagate is unreliable it's not a preference it's a fact

Do not mix drives Furgy, go with one company or the other, it cause weird things... Not to sure why. Get 2 Barracuda drives if you want Seagate, two Maxtor Ultra series if you want Maxtor. Both are very good drives.
