some good choices, i would get another 1gig ram, and a better psu look for a good make, PC Power & Cooling. Dont want to get a cheap one especially for a good system. otherwise all good.

Real nice Parts, but ****ty power supply.

Look for the 450 Watt fortron or a 460 Watt Enermax. Best bang for the Buck.

Change the Motherboard to a D3 gigabyte or an ASUS P5B E.

thanks for the advice, unfortunately the 2 parts you told me to change i already ordered :-/

I guess the power supply was just a quick choice i didnt think about, and its not that hard to replace. I also plan on getting another gig of ram, just cant afford it right away, ill probably get it a month down the road, same brand and everything though.
