    My first "Final Build", Please Check! Need some help with Hard Drive.

    Just check the build lmk, what yall think.
    -Need to be able to run 4-5 wows on low detail easily, or run just one WOW when arenaing on medium to high.
    -During either of these 2 tasks, I'll also need to be able to run itunes, surf the internet, and maybe record arena/rbg footage

    Also, I'm going to use my Dell Inspirion 531s's hard drive, since they are so expensive right now, it has Vista on it haha, is there a way to totally uninstall everything start fresh and throw it in my new computer and install windows 7 OS and it'll be fine? Kinda dumb question i guess, just wanna make sure it works.

    This is all I'm buying, so if I'm misinformed and need other things to actually get a working computer please tell me, otherwise verify that I'm good to go buying the following.
