4850 is a quite a huge jump over the 8800gt



4850 = 9800GTX (in most cases)

Thats what he had in the Links above.. so I'm guessing yes.. the Corsair 650tx is $150 again.. too pricey for his budget..

I would have suggested the Cooler Master 690, but the case choice is always user preference.

Looked like a decent build, and who makes the PSU's for Xigamtek (sp)?
