That PSU should be good for your system if you want to OC. It looks good.

*EDIT* What about your motherboard. Better get one that has better overclocking features.

Great, I'll go with the corsair. Yeah, I was planning on switching to the gigabyte p35 one that vernong recommended. That would be good, right?

Oh btw vernong thanks for pointing out that deal on the arctic over at svc - the only thing is I hate to pay $8.92 to ship one item... so I might just wait to get it with the rest of my stuff. Unless there are any other little things I might need that I could include with the svc order?

nice system.... question to my fellow techies tho... is the centurion 534 like the centurion 5 with the dust proof thing? dust filtration stuff.....

as for a sound card.... not necessary, (unless ur a sound phile) integrated sound has come along in the past few years... u now can get HD Audio on new motherboards.... i mean my sound is garbage if u compared it to a current mobo

i like this one but its pricey:

Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail

these are a sub 40$ ones:

Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail
Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - OEM
Newegg.com - Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail

Oh sweet, I didn't realize that onboard sound had come that far. I remember the days when it was absolute crap. In that case maybe I'll hold off on the soundcard.

What about temperature monitoring - is there software that will do that for me or do I need additional hardware to keep track of temps?
