It's called a metaphor. Ever heard of it? Don't make something out of nothing. If I wanted to stir people up about damn news stations, I would have written you a book. Figures. Someone always thinks someone is picking a bone.

Maybe you could be helpful and add insight to the topic at hand instead of purely derogatory next time.He did give insight, he told him to stay with stock heatsink.
Done and done

Hey look, someone who takes a moment to think thoughtfully before posting! Thanks Whyfly.

Now, let's all just take a moment, take a deep breath, and simmer down.

In regards to the build, I would snag that hard drive today! You can get it for $70 which is a great deal for a 1TB with 32MB of Cache. Some Sammy HDDs aren't the greatest, but I've got the F1 and it has been fine for me.

That ASUS board is wonderful. I recently used in a client's build. I love it. The color scheme, features, all that jazz. ASUS is one of the best MB manufacturers out there. Right alongside Gigabyte. My top 2.

I'm not hot on your power supply/case combo. Yes, you save $20 by selecting that, but for the price of that PSU, you could probably get a modular one. It is high quality, but, why not get a little more for your money! I'll try to look later (I'm currently doing homework...finals week for me).

I'm not up on current graphics cards so I won't comment on that, but I can say that the PII 955 will be a screamer.

EDIT: Just a quick browse through; this caught my eye. (if you don't mind rebates).

Are two capable PSUs. Sometimes the AMD stock heatsink has a problem with the fan magnets coming out of alignment and shipping and they can become loud, if this happens you need to push on the fan a bit and that may fix it.

That 550W is going to be cutting it WAY too close. Especially on 3 rails.

Lmao don't blame that on the heatsink, it's UPS's fault for loving soccer so much.
The Antec is out of the question, 550W for a 5870..Ohhh boy that's a disaster waiting to happen.
The Corsair, I approve of
Can't look up any links to show some other PSU's but I'll try when I get a chance.

Build looks very good to me. Nice choice of parts and a great deal on the case/PSU combo. Strong power supply carrying 60A on the single 12V rail.
