Default New rig on it's way.

I just placed my order for all the parts for my new rig. The specs are in my sig below. Just thanking everyone who helped me out here on the forums. I built my first rig 4 years ago and I used this same forum for tips and advice and once again you guys haven't failed me. I'll be posting pics and benchmarks at the end of the week, and I'll keep browsing and posting here regularly. THANKS!

Antec 850W PSU? Seems nice, but will you need that much power? But I guess that's that. You've already ordered it So good luck on your new build!

The antec 850 was on sale for 159. Compared to the usual 250 I thought it was an awesome deal for a modular PSU.
I ordered a ZEROtherm BTF90 cooler and I'm goin with vista 64-bit because my original plan was for 4gb of ram but I only ordered 2 for now.
