I wouldn't say the HIPER 580w is amazing, because the Corsair 520HX being in the same price range as the HIPER 580w (according to buy.com), would be a better choice. But the HIPER 580w is indeed a good power supply. It looks good too.

he won't need it.. as b1gapl told me "64bit can handle more ram, but doesn't hog more ram" or something like that...

Looks good. Just wait for the G92 gpu's to come out and who knows. Maybe the new amd quad cores will be awesome. Other than that, looks good.

If you have the money and are willing to do the research IMO water cooling is the only way. I will hopefully have my new rig on water before 2008.

:: On a side note, how are you affording this trick rig at 15?
