Lol that's a really nice saving, having it made for you too.
Anyway yah the build looks good. Sure you won't need more HDD space tho? Not exactly expensive to get more. And still might be a bit too much on the power supply front, it'll be far more than you ever need but I suppose it doesn't hurt to have the option.

Ahaha ur the devil man, tempting me into more HD. But ya know I forgot to mention I will be transferring over a WD 320G SATA drive to this new setup. So that'll be 3 HD @ 320G. Plus, backup external drives to @ 320 G. Yea and the power thing, thats the cheapest they had while being a reputable name. The stock one is 800W but also consdierably less money. So I took ur advice and went for the lowest W i could find with a good name.

Thank you for all your help today! Gave me a little more confidence in moving forward here.
And I like your screen name because it reminds me of Yama, the God of Death in vedic mythology!

Interesting, seeing as Yami is Japanese for darkness/evil/etc. But yeah, the full name 'Yamikotai' means emobidement of darkeness. Much like my real forename (meaning Dark one).

Glad I could help.

From the username thread:
Quote:
Anyway, my name used to be 'yugimotomanager' which I made when I was twelve, obviously it sucked and I used to play Yu-gi-oh at the time. Then I made 'Akikotai', which was an intentional miss-spelling of an anime character's name from Martian Successor Nadesico, an anime.

Then I found out that Akikotai actually meant something in Japanese (sheer fluke), can't remember what Aki is but 'kotai' is 'person/personification', and I know 'yami' is darkness/evil/etc., so then I turned it into what I have now; Yamikotai, meaning 'personification of darkness', which funnily enough is what my real name (Kieran - Dark one, darkness, etc.) means, roughly.
Unless you meant my real name?
