Re: trying to find out what to buy
Yeah, that's pretty much top of the line stuff already. You can get a faster CPU though if you're willing to spend over a grand for it. That video card is the absolute killer. I would love to get my hands on that. If you want to get a sound card, any SoundBlaster Audigy 2 card will do nicely. I guess that pretty much wraps it up. You'll also need fans, DVD-RW, floppy drive (just in case), power supply, case, and whatever little accessories you may need.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
