Question Last check-over, free beer v2.1

Reference from my last thread: Future proofing and upgrading rig, Free Beer Inside!

Here we are! Finally, I have amassed copious amounts of money, and will be throwing it all towards this sexy beast of a computer. Give it a final once-over, guys!:rtfm:

Asus P5Q Pro Atx LGA775 P45 DDR2 2PCI-E16 Crossfire 3PCI-E1 2PCI SATA2 Sound Gblan Esata Motherboard - DirectCanada

Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Direct Touch 3 Heatpipe Heatsink AM2 LGA775 S754 S939 S940 W 120MM PWM Fan - DirectCanada

Intel Core 2 Duo E7200 Dual Core Processor LGA775 2.53GHZ 1066FSB 3MB Retail Box - DirectCanada

Antec Three Hundred Mini Tower Gaming Case 300 ATX 3X5.25 6X3.5INT No PS Front USB & Audio - DirectCanada

Sub Total: $386.38

I have my ram, Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR1066 Memory 2X1gb.
I have a 500, a 160, and an 80 gig hard drive. I will probably install the 500 and 160...
I have my OS, my Monitor, keyboard, mouse, psu (corsair vx450) and gfx (HD4850) already purchased.

Thanks for the help!


P.s. the beer is in the mail ;)

Hey man,

You might want to grab that bolt-thru kit for the HSF too - it's only $9 or so and it'll make installing it much easier

Looks good but you shoudl take a look at the buy/sell thread.

The migration to i7 has left some very new components in need of a new home. Sniper for example has got a great combo deal on the P5Q deluxe and Xeon3110 for ~the same price as your MB cpu setup incl taxes...really its no contest between them!!!!!!!!!!
White Night:: i7920 (4ghz), Rampage III extreme (A1), Mushkin XP 1600 (9,9,9,24),SLI480., white MM horizon.
