Default My Build

ASUS A8N-E ATX AMD -
eVGA Geforce 6800GS -
CORSAIR 1GB (2 x 512MB) -
Seagate Barracuda 80 gig 7200
NEC Black IDE/ATAPI DVD Burner -
Antec LifeStyle SONATA II w/ 450 Watt SmartPower -
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ -

How does that look?

The only thing I'm concerned with is the case. Will that 6800gs fit into the case? And if I decide to upgrade the PSU and the graphics card for a 7800GT later on, will it be able to fit?
Case

I only worry because those cards are supposed to be very long.

Also, if I order a harddrive OEM all it will be is the harddrive correct? And if my mobo came with the SATA cables then I don't need anything else?

Gah, one more question, does that PSU come with a power connector for the graphics card and is it 24 pin?

Thanks.

Well, the case is fine.

OEM is straight from the factory from where they make it. So you just dont pay for the retail box, and other random crap you dont need.

The graphics card to my knowledge gets its power from the slot. Not a cord.

Yeah, but dont the new cards need a direct feed from the PSU?

Also you think that case is good?

Those equal pure sexy!

Although this is probably the most efficient case..

And my card doesnt need direct feed. Thats all I know. Ive been here for a long time, and never once heard a complaint about direct feed. And if there is such a thing, its gotta be universal. Because, once again, ive heard no complaints.

Wow, that coolermaster does look really good.

I may just get that one...

Also, that case is big enough for those long video cards correct?

I would upgrade your mobo/PCI Express x1: 2. You can save money and keep your pc alive longer. I could be wrong though anyone? Ive been out of the game awhile. HAHA
