    That sounds like a really good deal to be honest. Not too sure about the processor, but the rest of the configuration is actually really good. 2GB of RAM + 512 8800GT sounds like a real blockbuster for gaming.

    My verdict? Good deal for the price.

    It's almost the same thing, and to be honest I would go for the second one due to a reason: 2x160GB, AFAIK, is faster than 2x320, even in RAID 0. All depends now on the needs of your space storage.

    Unless you're a total performance whore, I'd skip RAID 0. Yeah, you should get a boost on disk thruput, but if either drive ever goes bad you lose all data on both drives. Doesn't really seem like it's worth it to me.

    Remember kids, either way you do it, backup like it was the last day you will see computers until 1 day before your death.

    And don't learn this the hard way. I did, and it wasn't pleasant.

    I experienced it too, and it's possible I may never get my data back even after I sent it to a service - 2 weeks ago!
