You do realize you still need an OS, and if you plan on playing FarCry 64bit then you need WinXP 64bit which I hear has some issues....

Nice man, the Thermaltake SHOULDN'T have problems, but if you feed it higher than a 6800GS I wouldn't be suprised if you did.

It wouldnt have any problems then and yes you do need X64 edition to run it and it is very buggy. He can prolly just use his OS on it.

Meh... I figured I'd use Microsoft's free 120 day trial of 64bit, if it doesn't work out I'll put home on it.

PSU wise, I decided it wasn't a problem, because a 6800GS is the max he'd put in there for a good year or 2.

Parts should be here hopefully by next friday...
