Default Re: New Computer

PM a mod, and try not to triple post. The "edit" button is there. There are a couple changes. The motherboard, get a P5WDH instead of the Bad Axe. For the processor, i suggest you wait 2 weeks to get a Conroe. For the RAM, get a get the G.Skill (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16820231065). And the powersupply has to go. Alvino, just bought a GameXstream and is very happy about it. Go with an OCZ GameXstream 600W. You cant go wrong.
