Default First build specs...

Hello, Again I have been making all the money I can and almost have enough. I will very soon. I looked over my previous specs and found out somethings were not advalible any longer. Like my Gpu. I don't know where I can get the other things to get it running. Like the vivo ports the power connertor and the converters. Where can I find those. Also I picked a psu like it was nothing. I don't want to spend anything over $100 on a differeent one. Also is there any alernate ram that overclocks the same. I think I will need some kind of help with that. I looked everyware for a decent setup and this is what I conmpiled. Also is the 8800 series worth it. I know direct x 10 but is it really worth it over the 1900xtx. Thanks for helping.

Put a little more money into the Power supply and Get this One.
Much better quality.

Of course if you don't like Blue there are Black and Red Ones.

Will you be buying Artic Silver 5? I didn't see that Link.

For the same price you can get 2 Philips Burners. Slightly higher quiality than Light on.

Other Than that, looks pretty good.

Well, I lover that PSU. On the dvd-rom side of things it doesn't have light scribe. I really lover the idea of light scribe so I am really looking into that. It will also help me to know where to get the other things for my gpu. Thanks a lot.

Ah, yea if you want lightscribe than get the lite on.

As for the Power supply, are you saying that the Hiper will bought or not?

Im not really a video card guru, so hopefully someone else can help you there.

What about the artic silver 5 since your already buying an aftermarket heatsink.

I know your buying that heatsink. BUt will you be using the Thermal paste that comes with it. Or buying Artic silver 5. Which conducts Heat more efficiently than normal thermal paste.

dude i have a lightscribe and i never use it i personally think its a waste even if you pay for the overpriced lightscribe cd/dvds the labels arent all that good but it is a cool feature if you're willing to spend lots of cash...

The other things would include:
Cables - power and the stuff for VIVO
Converter to vga. Not much more than that.

So where would I find them.
