Honestly for now 2 gigs is fine , in fact i have 2 gigs and never found lagging at all and hell if you get 2 gigs and you find need for more then just buy another 2 but i dont think you will

everything is great but i would order from newegg if you can. even if the prices are a little bit higher the customer service is unbeatable and is worth every extra penny, because thats all you usually have to pay for it

Yeah pretty nice nice case i always liked it ever since i saw it at the pc shop , although it is a monster

ALso as for the hard drive as well this might just be me but i dont realy like the big hard drives cos if they fail you loose so much more , rather than the one 500g hard drive i would take 2 smaller 250g's , i mean my personal max for a hard drive would be 250 or maybe 320 at a push , i mean unless you can afford 2 500g's in which case raid 1 them for piece of mind
