I'll also be throwing in a couple of 2TB HD's.


Use a different PSU. I had one of them and it shorted out on me and fried half my system. Do yourself a favor and buy a quality power supply from Corsair or Seasonic.

Here are a few at a $130 or less from NCIX:

Seasonic G Series 550W ATX 80PLUS Gold Modular 120mm Fan Power Supply PSU DC to DC

Seasonic M12II 750W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Power Supply PFC 80+ Bronze Modular 8PIN PCI-E 120MM Fan

I recommend this one here, not the most expensive either

Corsair Professional HX650W 650W ATX 12V 52A 24PIN ATX Modular Power Supply Active PFC 120MM Fan
