I would recommend buying a separate PSU, that's one thing you don't want to skimp out on. Look at Antec, Corsair, Enermax, PC Power & Cooling, and Seasonic.
Well, I'm using the EXACT build as stated above minus 1 video card ( will buy it later ). So if there are any corrections / improvements / price improvements, I'm buying exactly that tomorrow afternoon.
Thanks a bunch for the build and the info. I will be posting pictures of whatever I build when it is all said and done... Can anyone say WOOT for upgrading from 15" CRT to 19" LCD?
If not, how about 70GB to 740GB? Or how about from GeForce MX 440 to PaliT 4850?
So excited about this I can hardly stand it
edit: Also, what about in the way of extra fans? Should I buy anything? I'm trying to get everythin in 1 go since the 'Defer payments for 12 months' deal on Newegg is ending tomorrow. So speedy replies get a cookie.
Please remember I've never build a PC before, so any insider tips about any of the hardware would be really, REALLY appreciated.
