Default Re: Buildind another computer for a Friend!

The 8800 series cards are dual slot, so they expel almost all hot air out the back of the computer, this means heat generated doesn't end up back in the PC, greatly reducing the amount of case cooling needed.

And change the power supply to this:

$80 after rebates is a steal.
I know you love Silverstone PSUs, and I agree that they are very good. But the OCZ (FSP) is more efficient and therefore produces less heat which means the fan can spin at a lower speed.

You could save money and get this as well, which is far more than adaquate power supply wise, and supplying some of the best cleanest power, also being very very energy efficient.
