My System Specs

Default

If you're planning to run this machine as is for 2-3 years, I'd pick the quad-core. Rumor is that Windows 7 and DirectX 11 will make much better use of multi-core platforms than current games in the marketplace.

As for Mushkin, the HP's you've linked would be better. The lower the numbers shown for latency, the less cycles it takes to do a task. Not that there's anything wrong with the OCZ's you picked originally.

Also, most mobo's now only have 1 IDE connection, with a max of 2 devices. What's your DVD drive? You may have to pick up a SATA DVD drive.
