That all looks good. Won't be much use without a graphics card though but you already confronted that issue.
Nice heatsink btw.


the only thing i would do differently is the ram, that is if you are going to try to do any kindof overclocking, however, if your not than it's a great setup in my mind


Thanks, the only reason Im not buying a video card right now is because the best video card, cant think of it at the moment, costs about $400!! Could you suggest any that would be the best bang for my buck...I dont really want to play doom 3 or half life 2...More along the lines of RTS games, oh yea and I definitely want to play star wars Rogue Commander. Well thats just to give you some idea of the games I want to play. Yea, that is the only reason I wasnt going to get a bigger power supply, because I kind of dismissed the idea of a video card at the moment. ooooo yea I think the fan and heatsink look totally sweet!
