Default good setup?

Well since Im not upgrading my car, im gonna upgrade my comp over the next 3 months so that I can spread the cost of the new build over 3 credit card cycles, and to give me time to sell my current proc, vid card, mobo, hs/f. Anyway heres what Im thinking for my last upgrade in a long ass time:

http://www.rosewill.com/product/prod...?productId=237 - psu
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813152049 - mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103537 - proc
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102588 - vid card

im using the x800 pro because it can be flashed to run at x800xt pe standards and with the gpu cooler I have, I can definately push it farther.

Looks good. It's a basic setup, but it works. Follow one of the guys advice in the review and download the latest motherboard drivers off CHaintech's website instead of using the CD that goes with it. You'll end up having the latest and greatest motherboard drivers.
