Cut it out to accomodate the retail GPU and 19".

Also, I'll be going with the TruePower 2.0 550W for my PSU, decided not to get the NeoHE.

I love my mom!

Due to the fact this is a "family" computer, I had to run over my part decisions with her (not like she understands any of it) but she said that I could spend a bit extra on the monitor for a Dell 2005FPW because she uses them at work and loves them. I've already bought one of those, about the buy the rig.

I may in the future, but not right away. I mainly got it because it was cheaper and has the larger L2 cache.
