Alright, thanks for all your help. I'll be ordering the card and case tonight.
And I'll be sure to come back to this site when I need PC help in the future.

Enjoy your new hardware and make sure to let those tech support forum marketers know you have not been tricked by their sorcery.

Are they wrong? or just being overly cautious?

And sorry if I'm asking a lot of questions, but I just wanna be sure everything will work out.
Yeah they are wrong. Read my sig. Do yourself a favor and get this one Newegg.com - EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1563-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card, same speed/price as the ASUS one linked but EVGA carries a lifetime warranty.

It's about 3x what a 9800GT is.

  • AMD FX 8350 Black Edition
  • XFX R9 390 8GB
  • 16GB (8x2) GSKILL DDR3 1866mhz
  • Aspire X-Plorer Silent Case
  • PC Power & Cooling Silencer 610W Continuous
  • 180GB Intel 520 SSD
  • Vizio 32" TV (1920/1080)/Acer P221W 22" Widescreen LCD (1680/1050)
