Yeah, that psu was one thing I was iffy on. All the reviews are saying you have to turn it upside down, but you'll want the clear pointing down anyways right? But then some had trouble lining it up, the screws that is I'm guessing. Wanted one with LED's, and that clear makes it even cooler! If anyone kind find other nice one's though, don't be scared to post them!

This is the case I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811163022

Looks good to me. Although id say get 2gb ram, and use hard drive from other computer, or something to that effect. Beucase windows stops using VM with 2gb of ram. So then ur computer is hella fast, no matter the processor. So, could i reccomend one of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&Go.x=0&Go.y=0
And then 2gb of ram.

Another option I had for the ram was:

OCZ 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Platinum System Memory - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227210

I guess if I want to save a little more, and then be able to get the 2gbs that would be nice, and well yeah, 2gb would be nice. Gaming freak that psu is $40 more , maybe something still around $50-60 would be nice. And I don't need the SLI capability
