I just noticed that the PSU I got has a PCI-E connector.
Does this mean it supports only PCI-E ???
Please tell me it supports agp 4x/8x too!!!

Unless you need the external box console thing that comes with the Xi-Fi Platinum, just get the XtremeMusic. (Same sound quality) Nevermind I didn't see the $100 rebate. $86 after is a catch.

Get the Logitech Z-5300e instead of those Creative speakers. You'll appreciate it down the road.

You can also get a much better monitor for the price. Like this:
Acer 19"

Also save a little money and get this motherboard:

How the heck is that harsh?

Harsh is saying your build sucks and your PSU you chose is POS.

He's telling him what will happen if he cheaps out and it IS THE TRUTH.

No harshing on his mellow at all.

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars

please dont tell me u actually got that psu. all agp cards either get power from the mobo itself or they have an extra molex connector on
it. more powerful pci express cards have an extra pci express plug for more power. either way that powersupply will work with agp or pci-x
