No onboard wireless on your mb. You would need a usb or pci card to receive wireless.

that is the link to the mb you chose on the egg. I just posted the link so you could confirm the lan status of it.

Just pick up a usb wireless stick. They can be useful to have.

Is that power supply gonna be enough to run this system? I've heard the videocard wont run at full power with just a 750W.

600 Watt and four 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode

750W will be more than enough.

Nice build.
That mouse you picked... I guess it is a mx518 copy made by rosewill.. It looks pretty good for $10!
Hope you enjoy your new beast :)

Thnx for the info. Slowly getting the parts one by one, should be done by christmas:doh: (money is tight) Putting it together should be a blast, and a headache.

Gotta be honest I went with AMD solely based on reviews and that GHz number. I'd like to see what the opposite brand has to offer since all my past computers have intel parts. How can I tell what processor is faster?
