That hard drive that Ridlyn picked out is worthless as far as I'm concerned. You picked a good one to start out. I'm tired of people thinking SATA 3.0gb/s is a beneficial upgrade. Yeah, your power supply needs help. If you want to spend a little less, look into the Fortron 450W rig. It has 36A on the 12V rail.

Uhh.. Good luck with finding a 7800GTX.

And you dont own a computer?!

But if you do manage a 7800GTX, get at LEAST a 500 watt psu.
