I believe the Tuniq does come with thermal paste, but it isn't very good.

You can replace the thermal paste on the GTX, if you want. Just make sure you know what you're doing, if you plan on taking it apart, to apply thermal paste. I think it's good enough to hold off, on it's own.

From the parts, you're selling, I'd say at least $200-300 range.

I would suggest buying aftermarket Paste for the tuniq yes. You can also take off the original paste off the GPU and put better stuff on, but it will only lose you 5-10degrees. It will help with OCing, but its not Vital.

yeh, loooking at that card, ill leave it alone.
I do have as5, so ill just use that.

Well i might find out today if i can do this.
Otherwise ill have to wait till my student loan money comes in.
If i cant do full build right now, i might just buy the case,psu,and gfx card, dvd burner, and maybe the hard drive.
And then wait for my money and get the quad,ram,etc.

Thanks for all your help...really appreciate it.

When do you plan on doing your build?

I just saw this picture of a P180, with the fitting of a GTX:



It looks very tight. You might have to remove that middle hard drive cage.

You can put the hard drive, in the bottom right hand corner.

Or you can do what I did to my xbox controller. I cut off the ends of the controller and a USB cable, and tied the USB wires together with the USB ends, coming off the controller. Takes a little time, but hey....I did it for free.

If you don't want to, I found this:
CompUSA.com - Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows - JR9-00001 - Gaming » PC Games » Joysticks, Gaming Controllers

Cheaper here:
Amazon.com: Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows: Video Games
