hmm, thats weird, I will work on the links. I already have a new monitor, so I am good there.

I have another question (this is my first time building a computer) my motherboard says it has an nvidia chipset...does that mean it won't support the ATI graphics card I have listed? I wanted the GF7900GT, but it will take way too long to get them back in stock.

the 7900gt should be better , i havnt seen any benchmarks between the two but the 7900gt have 24 pixel pipelines and the x1800xt have only 16

the psu that comes with that case isnt atx 2.0 and its weak on the +12v only 18A , better take this one instead

and btw next time you wanna copy a link from a post , click the quote button to see the full links , when you copy just like that it doesnt copy the entire link

The 7900 gt is better than the X1800 xt. Overall, looks like a nice build. Will you be overclocking?

get the 7900gt, from what i have seen of the x1800xt the price tag is not justified by comparison.
