    That's what I've got so far for my (mostly) gaming machine. Shipping is another $50 or so. Trying to stay under or around a $1300 budget, already have accessories from my current computer.
    Any opinions?

    I'd upgrade the graphics card to a 4850 or 4870.

    Yes the 4850 and 4870 are better than the 9800GT.

    ****ING FAIL.

    First of all, right now DDR3 is just expensive crap that is worse than DDR2 at price/performance. There is no reason to have DDR3 unless you have a blank check.

    Second of all, it's solid STATE drive. And those are crap right now for the exact same reason as DDR3.
