    Motherboard only has 1 ide channel..you should use a SATA dive instead or you won't be able to have dual optical drives

    Those components cost $750. The other bits probably cost no more than $100 combined (including the case). I'd build it myself, and while I understand it isn't for everyone, with newegg the way it is and how easy it really is to build and the resources online, it makes sense.

    Thanks for the replies :).

    I'll ask the guy for a SATA drive. I'm totally computer illiterate so there's no way I could put it together myself :(. I do a lot of photoshop and just starting to get into video editing which eat a lot of memory. Any other suggestions I should ask for? Thanks again :kiss:
