LOL! Right idea, wrong section though. It should have been in the "General Computer Hardware And Software" forum.

Looks like a screaming build!

actually, only one thought...why not go with vista home premium?? might as well go with the latest and greatest operating system and get all the eye candy....that set-up will run it great.

Also, with regards to the operating system... i've know from the past with previous OS's in the preliminary stages as it tends to intergrate itself that minute problems occur and have had people mention that Vista is a hog.. and tends to drag on the system.. and that XP runs with it smoothly.

vista has been out long enough now that the kinks have been worked out...i never had any problems really with it except for the first couple of months had to wait for dell to release a compatable printer driver but that was dell's fault.....and there is not going to be any drag with the quad core and 4GB of ram...

For a system like that, might as well go with Sound Blaster X-Fi. You'll get much better sound (because of the hardware and software that comes with it). You should definately do that, and blow the competition away.
