This way I wont have to even think about getting another for a while.... I am hoping that will be enough to last me until its time to put a new system together. My goal was to get the most bang for the buck without having to upgrade anything for five years or more except maybe adding in hard drives and video card upgrades. Maybe my choices are going to turn out being a bit of overkill and maybe they won't. We will just have to see a few years down the road.
