well the links don't work but going off of descriptions it looks alright.

edit: still looks good overall but i advise a hdd with 16MB cache instead of 8MB.
spring for 2GB of RAM, modern games take up to 1GB, then you have Windows, and any other program you may have on in the background. 2GB will keep you covered for a while.

And I think I might just stick with 1GB right now. My friend with an alienware that he paid way too much for, lol, has 1BG and that's doing 4 table poker and WoW at the same time, not to mention AIM, Mozilla, etc.

And what is the differences in the caches of the HDD? Can you explain that?

the 8 or 12ms is the monitors response time(time it take one pixel to go from active to off), in lots of games you need a lower response time or you may start to see artifacts or ghosting.

1GB is fine it was just a suggestion

and the extra cache in the hdd just makes accessing a little faster, not really needed but.....hey it looked good so i'm just reaching out and giving you all the suggestions i can think of. :P
