well i already got the rosewill, and i would rather not buy another power supply. I mean it powers my 6800ultra! which if you know anything, that things eats some power.

hey, i have the e8400 and the ASUS P5N-D. Only problems i have is with the temps. ASUS PROBE II is the only thing that dounds believable, cpu is at 42c and mobo at 36c. besides temp sensor issues, great cpu!
