I believe that you will be wasting 2GB of RAM with a 2GB video card as Windows can only address a total of 4GB unless you are going to opt for a 64 Bit operating system.

Isn't this posting a bit advanced for the Absolute Beginners Forum?

hey thx for the reply i believe on the Operating System - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Full Version (PC DVD)

it states u can either have 32 bit or 64 bit so i will op for 64 bit as later i will probably end up adding another gfx card and more ram

and i am a beginner :D i havent a clue on how to put this all together ive just basically put 2 and 2 together and prayed :D

what u reckon? you think thi will be nice system?
