Default Check my build

Alright, so i finally have all my money saved up, and im in the the final stages of getting my new PC. Could you guys check my wishlist here: http://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion/...stTitle=Octopi

And let me know if everything is compatible, or if some of the parts are unreliable. I am especially worried about the power supply and the mobo, because i have heard that alot of people had trouble with that model connecting with power supplies (how do i find out if the power supply has a24 pin connection?). Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Very Happy with PS. To clairify the 24 pin thing, It has a clip on the 24 connector so you can disconnect the additional 4 pins and use it as either a 24 or 20 pin connector.
One of the customer reviews answered your question.

You may want to get a second optical... Trust me, you won't regret it.

Looks good to me.

Are you going with stock cooling?

No monitor.

Thanks for the answer to the 24 pin thing.

I have 2 optical drives already, unless your talking about somthing else.

I was debating whether or no i should use the stock cooling, or get a thermal take, any suggestions?

I am borrowing a friend monitor till my funds replentish, and then ill buy an lcd of my own.

Thanks for the input

No harddrive?


The GPU is out of stock

The PSU would not be one I would get. Thermaltake, OCZ, Antec or Enermax would be my choice (in no perticular order)
