Picked up the last of the new internals and assembled the monster.

AMD Phenom II x4 20 Processor 2.80g
4gb Memory
ATI Radeon HD 4800 1g vidcard
1TB Harddrive

Running great, and fast. I am amazed I got this all together and working without issues. I deep keep Vista 64bit on it and will upgrade to Win 7 after the major bugs are worked out.

Probably already obsolete, but should keep me going for a year.

So far no bugs in Windows 7, Windows 7 works out all the bugs in Vista.

Indeed. Also, OS, I remember you mentioning that you were taking some college classes. If you're still considered a student at that university and you have a valid .edu email address, you can probably take advantage of the student discount from Microsoft and get Windows 7 for about $30. I highly advise you do that if you can.

EDIT: Another thing, AMD just released the 5870 cards and they're pretty freakin awesome. They're around $400 now I think, not sure what your budget is. Just read up on them and they outperform overclocked GTX285's by a significant margin (often around 50%) and uses less power at the same time. If you're shopping for a card in that price range, you can't beat the 5870 right now.

Obsolete long ago but only an idiot would buy a computer with the absolute newest and best parts.

Nice build.
