Will after reading reviews, and hearing how much better of an option it is to build ur own pc, im gonna attempt it. Plus my moms friend builds pc's and he said he would help me. I want a system for serious gaming HL-2 doom3 (Natural Selection(best HL mod) CS:S DoD CoD etc etc I have a budget of $1800 but can go to $2000 max if its worth it.

Good dvd/rw cd/rw etc etc umm any other goodies you ppl can think of i dont wanna cut corners on this sytem, i want a kick ass gaming system thanks for the help.

I recommend this Kick-Ass PSU. Never cheapen on your power.

As far as hard drives, it depends on whether you wish to go SATA and be future proof, or if you prefer PATA.

SATA Drives: Hitachi and Seagate. if possible, get a drive with NCQ, which will help speed application loading.

PATA Drives: Western Digital or Maxtor.

Size depends on how much of a packrat you are, but on the order of 250GB should be sufficient for most gamers.
