    get the 250GB WD SATA2 16mb cache drive, the diamondmax sata2 drives are not true sata2,i would explain but ill be here forever if i do. essentially any diamondmax "sata2" drive is really just a sata drive, diamondmax use a technicality to claim their sata2 drives are sata2 drives, when their not.

    as for RAM, get some 2Gb Mushkin DDR2 XP2-5300 better timings and only £161 ;)

    ok now graphics, why bother with a 7600GT when you can get a 7900GT HERE for £139 ;)

    because im no fan of abit (stung 3 times in a row by them) their officially on my shitlist. and tbh their boards just arent very good anymore, gigabyte have some very nice 775 mainboards though.

    lastly that freezer 7, you might want to consider something with more oomph considering the extreme heat of 32c+ in uk summers now. maybe a 7700cu or something.

    ok im done now :D
