  1. Hey guys, just wanted to get peoples opinions about a system i'm building, here's the list of specs

    Coolermaster 830 stacker
    Raidmax 630 PSU
    ASUS P5wdh MOBO
    Corsair 2 x 1GB ddr2 800 (pc6400) dominator ram
    XFX 7950 GT GPU
    Intel core 2 duo E6600
    lite-on 16x DVD-R drives x 2
    Wester Digital Raptor X 150gb hard drive

    So after all this, im in the market for doing a dual monitor set up, was planning to go with 2 dell 2407. but was wondering if anything else could compare, ive also been looking at the hp 24 inch also. Is anything else out there?? I do alot of photoshop, dreamweaver, and flash, all at the same time. Add web browsing, chatting on AIM, and listening to music as well. Will this system be able to handle that, I was considering upping the ram to 4gb or will just 2 gb suffice...?? or is everything im putting together just straight overkill, but in this computer world, nothing is more fun than overkill...

    Well, its certainly not overkill! :) But if you are going to be doing a lot of webpage design then you will want more storage than the Raptor can provide. A 500GB WD or Seagate would give you lots of room.

    I don't see any potential bottlenecks.
