i love mine
I guess I should have been a little more clear!
2TB's of TOTAL storage. Regardless of how it's done. 2 500GB drives and 1TB drive or 2 TB drives, etc. It doesn't matter...however I was looking at just two 1TB drives.

Hmmm...not sure why the 650W wouldn't be good enough...I won't be doing SLi, and from http://www.extreme.outervision.com/p...ulatorlite.jsp
as a general guide I would have plenty of power.
Anyone have suggestions on parts? mobo, gpu, etc?
This is what I came up with, but any suggestions would be welcomed.

- *NOT* including OS, didn't pick one yet.
NOTE - some of the items are FREE like the 2 games, and mouse. But I'm guessing they don't take those prices off until check out. Rounded up to nearest dollar and I get $1,041.00
I thought it was going to be a harder time getting it within my budget. I wish I had room for a 2nd monitor...the desk is one of those "hutch" style desks
Now if I could get a PROMO CODE that would be awesome! LOL!
Just realized the mobo that I had was NOT compatible and I had missed a PSU. Replacing/adding those now puts my slightly over my MAX budget of $1500 and still without an OS.
