How 'bout switching that Logitech rat to MS IntelliRat w. IntelliEye. Dam much smoother movement, and you dont have to worry about a sticky trackball. i love mine, thats for sure!!

Site Content: Overclocking, cooling and a lot of BS about Me, Myself and I. Beats the heck outt of some quack charging me through the bill, just to grope a bunch of places I don't even touch....
Anyways, yes, i've got a couple of 80 cfm'ers i'm going to throw in there (one as a blowhole, the other as an input)
to answer the Q about the NIC... he already has one in his old system... i really told him that if he's going to get such a nice system (w/ DDR GeForce, esp.) that he's going to be doing a bunch of net gaming, and will really, really want a cable modem... so he's thinking about that... that's the reason that i didn't really specify a modem, cause he may decide to just go w/ the nic (but will probably need a modem when he goes home over break).
Is that Macro$haft mouse all it's cracked up to be? I had heard that IR isn't as good as radio (used by Logitech)... anyways, i could use some edukashun on this whole mouse thing
as for the hard drive... it needs to be UDMA/66 and around 13-20gb... but when i looked at the IBMs they were all quite a bit more expensive (with these specifications)
once again, any help is greatly appreciated!

Go with what Duckman said, I second that emotion as I have both here, an Intelieye explorer and a logitech cordless. Actually they are both connected and they both work. It's quite usefull when friends come round. I would prefer a Cordlees intelieye but I hardly use the logitech one now. It's a good mouse but the Microsoft one is just better. (It's also excellent in Q3)
Also maxtor HDD seem to be quite sensitive to oveclocked fsb's. I find Quantum or IBM better for this.
