I'm planning on ordering the components for a new computer, and building it myself. I don't have much experience with some of the parts of a computer, so I need some feedback on how well the list I have compiled so far will run together.






Video Card

Hard Drive

DVD Drive



I am sort of concerned about the video card. I can't seem to find any comparisons between the 1gb version and the 2gb version. The 1gb version is very similar to the GTX 275, and it would probably be more prudent to get the GTX 275 between those two. But I don't know how much difference I will get from the 1gb version to the 2gb version.

Keep in mind that I plan to play games such as GTA4, Crysis, CoD-WaW (only if I choose to get the video card I have listed, as it comes with it), and later in the year, Starcraft 2

Feel free to critique my choices; I want a good gaming system, but I don't particularly want to buy the first thing I see and have wasted my money. Thanks for any feedback :)
