Yeah. I've always wanted one, so I figure this is the right chance for something like that.

Well, I always wanted an acrylic case, but I never could really justify the costs to put my junky little mATX computer in it, so now I will be able to do that, since I am going to have a real gaming rig with a full size ATX board.

Yeah. Im not going to buy it all at one time, though. I plan to cycle out parts from my current system, so i won't have to wait as long. I will post pics when I finally do finish, though.

BTW, I have changed my mind on the graphics again. I now think the sapphire 4850x2.

Is the 2gb worth it, or should i get the 1gb?

Go for the 2GB version. You will see a performance jump. I don't know how much of a jump, but you will.
