so i copied my shopping cart sorry if it's hard to read. but i just had some questions about some of the stuff in the build. first being does anyone know whether or not that video card will fit in the antec mini case? second being i'm pretty sure the psu will supply enough power to the computer but i wanted to check what you all think maybe i'm wrong. thanks for looking.

ryan.

Hi, could you post a link to the site your ordering this from? It seems pretty expensive.

And a few more questions: What country are you in? Do you overclock? What is your monitor's native resolution?

Thanks.

I'm not sure about the video card fitting, but the power supply will be good for your specs.

It's going to be pretty cramped in there especially with the HD 4870 and you're going to need a mini ATX board which not only is going to limit your choices, but it may not be able to handle the 9950. I recommend going with a standard ATX case like the RC-690, and a 790GX mobo.

The 1GB of VRAM isn'g going to make much of a difference at your res of 1680x1050, I'd recommend going with the cheaper 512MB models as they're such good deals ATM.

I prefer modular, it makes for a much nicer looking inside and is nice for cable management. 550W will be fine for your system.

+1, great deal.

thank you very much for the input i'm reconsidering the parts now. likely will go with the 512 can get them for ~200 now. also thinking about a 550-600watt supply, along with a new case/mobo.

one thing i was wondering was that the 790gx series motherboards seem like the higher end mobos maybe for more overclocking capabilities? if i'm not doing anything too intense would there be much of a difference gettinga 780 or 750?

the 1GB didn't make much sense at your resolution anyway, the 512MB should be fine...
