hmmm ok your not into games, so your intel setup should be ok for your needs...and becides since im a gamer i favor AMD more , but since you do video editing etc. you should go with intel. RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Drives, i think) is basically 2 hard drive linked together, to "combine" the 2 of them together (so if you set up 2 80gb in raid, the comps read them as 160gb instead). There are 3 types of Raid, RAID 0 (for speed), RAID 1 (for security) and RAID 0+1 (2 worlds combined).
about your hard drive links, ill get them later, im kinda busy right now.

How do the graphics compare between the ATI AIW 9600xt and the 6600GT? And what is the differance between the AIW 9600xt and 9800 pro?

well there is no comparison. the 6600 is flat out better than the AIW 9600 xt in games. but since your using windows xp media edition, you probably would want it, since the AIW has TV and a whole bunch of plug-ins. and the difference between the 9600xt and the 9800 pro is that the 9800 pro AIW is faster at graphics processing than the 9600 xt AIW, but more expensive.

or you can get a 9800 AIW which is a lot more expensive. (only if you want to spend that much money) otherwise, the 6600gt will suit you well.
