I've been wondering about newegg for a summer build (have been doing this alot), do note that it doesnt have a CPU cooler since i already have a Freezer Pro 64 on hand that needs another home.

So, what do you think?

(and a little off topic, i was planning on selling my PSP, with Feild Commander, a travel case, and a 1GB memory stick, any ideas of what i can get out of it on ebay?)

i would save an extra 20 bucks or so and get 2x 1gb of ram. just a suggestion. im sure others will have issues with your psu choice. but if you're confident, then its ok.

well, for my current needs 1GB is enough but by the time i can purchase any new hardware for a new computer, i will probably need 2 or more GB's so i'll give it some though.

as for the PSU, i wanted to put in the 450W Xcilo (spelling?) but newegg took it off (anyone know why?), so i may look at the 500W model, i think they;re roughly the same price
