Don't want to make the RAM too big because it'll only give the PC more memory to search, which will slow it down.

Not only did this paragraph hurt my brain physically, but I'm going to do my best and hope you were just joking... Its 4am for me so I'm hoping its said for a laugh.

Btw Reiko, if you HAVENT paid for that system yet, do yourself a favour and dont see that guy anymore for PC advice. Unless your budget is $300, ditch him.

i wanted to say something, but didnt wanna be mean since he obviously seems pretty psyched for his computer
u never know how old he is, or what his budget is and maybe that computer blows away what he currently has
nonetheless, for gods sake, have him put more ram in

Ya, you won't be playing the latest PC games with that rig. Get 1 GB of memory.

Get Splinter Cell: Chaos Teory for the Xbox, when that comes out at the end of March. Keep an eye on Area 51, that one might turn out to be a good game.

I put up the prices on one side so you can see the lowest you'd pay for the components you're getting from him, and on the right I put my personal preferences that you should change or could find elsewhere in parts. Its not too much higher then what you'd be paying for, and the 6600GT is a good enough card that when you decide to upgrade,
because the motherboard is an SLI system, you go out and buy an identical 6600GT and put it inside your system so they are both running together and double your performance.

Its just a basic guide. My advice though would be not to get that system your friend is making you. IF you can it would be better to wait a little and save up just a bit more money. But its really up to you and what you feel comfortable with.

Link below is a basic guide to finding the cheapest parts. But remember, just because its cheap doesnt mean you should aim for the cheapest. Some brands suck. Others dont. Feature wise aswell. I'd be comfortable in knowing that you arent planning to go back to that guy for PC advice.

Thank you for the advice. He's the guy we've went to for our last computer so we decided to go again. My brother's best friend's dad is a computer guy jsut like the otehr one. I'm gonna go to him and see what kind of price he can get us and see if it's better to go the new guy or the Compustar guy.

Also dont rule out the option of you yourself choosing all the seperate parts from different shops or places on the net and then having that guy or someone else put the system together. Alot of the time not 1 place has the actual equipment you want and you need to settle for 1 or 2 parts being not what you wanted and spending around the same amount or more.

I'd really encourage you to get the parts seperately.
