I've changed my Power Supply to a 550 Watt version, simply because this one has better ratings, more power, and it glows. I was able to use a -$25 promo code which really shaved down the price so the grand total w/ shipping and Vista Home Premium would be only $630, with the other PSU it was $650 and for a more powerful 630 watt it woulda been about $670. It still has hundreds of 5 and 4 star ratings, with only a few 1-3's. Your opinions?
And I changed my motherboard to this... The gigabyte one had some pretty scary 1-star ratings, this one has several 1 star ratings about video input, however, the vast majority [hundreds] of reviews show that it is great. I got a good combo-deal with my E8400 processor, so, it actually turns out even though this Mobo is more expensive than the gigabyte one, since it has a combo deal I actually SAVED $10 or so, which is awesome.
Also, I saved $25 on the PSU, I could re-direct the $25 promo code to get an Extended 1-year warranty on my motherboard, is this a good idea? Or would insuring my power supply probably be a better idea?
Still need info. on how to wipe my C:/ Drive...
