My System Specs


Only suggestion I'd make right off of the bat would be the PC P&C 750W PSU that's currently on sale over at NCIX for $89. That'll be more than enough for any single vid card setup.
Actually that particular PSU will run any SLI / XFire System just fine!!!

Firestrike Extreme: 21.452
MARK 11: 32.530

Introducing me n my OCD to Watercooling, is like taking an Alcoholic to an "all you can drink" Beach Bar in Mexico

I think I will just wait for usb 3.0 and sata 3.0 because I don't/won't get a new computer after 5-6years so I want least upgrading as possible. There when usb 3.0 products come out I don't want my computer to be incompatible because I didn't wait a few months. Same goes for sata 3.0

in 6 years a lot of thing may be incompatible in what you gone buy in few month... you better to get a $ 1000 Pc and change it in 3 years than buy a $ 2000 for 6 years , if I remember well the Northwood was release 6 years ago. with a powerfull AGP . try to fit a 4890 or a 275 on it today.
