Default Re: New Build...Need Help

adding on to this post with my own question... and extending my own thread, will a desktop hard drive work on a laptop type power supply @19v? many people have been saying that hard drives are meant to work at 12v. My powersupply has the 4pinn molex for it. it is a mini itx motherboard with built in powersupply, this should work right? THanks.. and please dont make to many post regarding this question.. as this is his thread and his question.

Do you plan on overclocking? If yes, I'd suggest to go with the XFX 8600GTS
because the new XFX warranty (from april 17th, if you register the card on their website) covers burning due to overclocking so if you burn your card...

It's the same price

I would take that over the OCZ any day. Corsair isn't worth it. They make fast RAM but the price is equal. Look into the Crucial Ballistix. Motherboard I'm not too fond of, but i guess its alright. I would rather get the ABIT Quad GT or ASUS P5B Deluxe for P965...and for 975x i would get Intel D975XBX2, DFI 975x, or the ABIT AW9D-MAX.

Are you planning on OCing? If not, you don't need that fast of RAM. Something like this should be fine: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227078

EVGA's warranty covers damage from OCing. Same thing too, all you need to do is register it. Motherboard from them is covered under the same warranty.
