Thats going to be a nice rig when you get it hammered out, you going to run Vista?

Man i havent built a decent rig since my last 64bit and its getting way old now for what i do.. Sad

I know HQ M0nsterboy got a new rig and its kick ass watercooled and all that stuff if you want to go that far. I only wish for that. lmfao.

Shame about pc-hq.com really as we all use pc's..

the only problem i see is ur PSU, i suggest at least a 800 watt, 500 watt is too little, and u didn't mention what case, i'll need a big enough case to house ur graphics card, wihtout it cramping the mobo space, and u'll need a zalman cpu cooler to help cool the cpu better, then the stock that comes with it, how mouch is all goign to cost.

i agree with crackface, ur psu CANNOT handle ur grpahics card, i mean it wont even power it up and when u assembled it all together and it doesnt put out a video. Troubleshooting is a bitch. Lucky u did the smart thing and ask for advice. Make sure u read the fine print on everthing when ur building a custom case. I built my own, but i didnt read the fine print on my sata hard drive and i ended up frying the bitch with 24 volts, instead of 12 volts. Lucky newegg has a superb RMA. Great job on going with newegg, i order all my shit from newegg. I suggest u get a 800 watt psu like crackface said and make sure ur psu has (2) 6 pin adapters cause thats what ur video card requires to power it up. I found a good case for ur parts. Now looking at the price of the parts i estimated what u can afford. Hopefully its not too much. I found a case that Maximum PC rated the best of the best. And a water cooling also rated best of the best. im pretty sure the case and the water cooling are compatible with each other. Cant promise u anuthing tho. Here's the links also from Newegg Surprised

i found an arcyllic case. But the water cooling is not capable with it. So if u get it u'll lose the watercooling but u can add a load of fans and it'll do the same job. U shouldnt have any problems with the parts ur gettin.

Good thing im asking people for advice...

i was reading some reviews and some benchmarks. and found this card

GeForce 9800 GX2 SSC

seems to be way better than the ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2
that I picked out....

so if I change the card does that change everything i have picked out or what????

that nvidia card will be a hell of a lot better then the ATI, i noticed ur pocessor is a little behind, u have ddr 3 ram, the raptor hhd, and eveyrthing else plaaned for the future, get the quad core, it's amazing, but it's a oem use u'll need a heatsink and cpu paste Wink
