    you want a 64-bit OS if you're gonna do 4GB of ram.

    That sound card is uber-shitty. Get a M-Audio card for something inexpensive but with good sound. Mackie and Emu are other options if you wanna spend more.

    that case has a 1394 on the top port
    that media card reader has a 1394 port
    that mobo doesn't have 1394 headers, only a 1394 port at the rear panel

    get a different mobo or a firewire card

    get the 7200.11 32MB cache Seagate instead.



    edit: mobo probably has one 1394 header

    The Samsung uses a WSXGA+ panel and has a 2ms response time.

    The Acer has a TN panel and a 5ms response time which isnt as good but you gain an extra 2 inches along with the superior 1920x1200 resolution for a cheaper price.

    IMHO the difference between 5ms and 2ms is neglable and I am using the very same Acer as posted and I love it.
