but question, why aren't you looking at newegg.com? usually best prices around
either that or your local B&M store, sometimes have good sales.
i just searched and first link i found with the moniter i posted
of course i would be shopping aat newegg but i got a local deal for $130 for the samsung

Sweet rig man. The 9600 GT should be able to handle gaming on a 19 Inch no problems.

My bro just got a 19inch wide screen and his going to order a 3850 or 3870. Both will handle gaming at those resolutions as well.

As for me, I m going 22" with Crossfire 4830's. 4850's if prices drop to under $200 after shipping, tax. and everything. But chances of that are slim lol.

thx alot

well i hooked everything up today exept a hdd which im getting tommarow hopefully
came out nice but I heard a small cracking noise from my mobo as i was putting this one plug in on the corner. Dont know if that will be a problem, but I know the board is somewhat flexable soo....

I still got 4 more gigs or corasir ddr2 ram coming


Now all I need to know is If i can start the system with no hdd just to see if things are working peoperly(fans, mobo, cpu)

and then turn it off once I see it turns on

SO what you guys think wilkl it be safe or just wait for the hdd to come

Ohh another question, can I hook up 2 video cards at once not using sli(they are diff. cards)

and once I put the video card in does it only need pci power connector and nothing else.


also does it matter what order I put the ram in or what slot I out the video card in


thanx alot guys for the help in advance, I know I know very little but hopefully it will work out good, pics are coming of everything installed soon

If the board actually cracked, that could be a big problem...

You're safe to start your computer to see if it works.

I don't know if you can hook up another video card, but just stick with the one 9600 for now. It'll be sufficient.

It doesn't matter which slot the card goes into, and all you have to do is put it in the slot and plug the power cord in.

I believe you can put another card in there,
verong said something about using a weaker card as a physics card while back
but I've never tried it

Ill just leave the card out, once i get home ill start it up and see if things go right

The baord didnt crack at all, Just a noise
sort or when you fold a bag or chips
But no physical damage i can see
I guess ill find out sooner or later
also how long does the cpu thermal paste dry out
I had it on for about 3-4 hours dont know if thats good enough

Well, I've never used the substance before, but I can't imagine it still not being dry after that amount of time.

Love your case btw. Can you get it with a red glow? I'm not building my pc for a few months, but that is a really suite looking one.
