Default Design me a PC

Well... Design me a pc without Mouse, keyboard, Monitor, speakers, or videocard. I was really interested in the E6600 and at least 2GB, i would love 4GB. I m just holding back on the video card as the X850 XT will do me fine until the DX10 cards go down in price. Lets say all of it for under $600-$700.
I want something that will look good on my 22" Widescreen Monitor lol, and remember Crysis looks good to me

What kind of apps are you running that need 4GB of ram? Unless its a server or somethign crazy like that 2GB will do you just fine. Actually, if your really picky 4GB of ram would actually slow your pc down.

I'd go with that. 580W should be fine for your machine and Hiper is a trusted brand.

Yeap 2GB-3GB is fine any game wont use more than 2gis I believe. And it wont detect 4GB unless you have a 64 bit OS.

I don't think 64 bit os's take any more ram than a 32 bit os does.
