I saw in the reviews on newegg that people were saying there isn't a vista driver for the video card.

I would get a different mobo....thats only a 945P one and those weren't made for Core 2 Duos. You should look for a Biostar 965PT for about 4 bucks less, I just don't want you having to deal with an old chipset if you have a new build on everything else.

You still have not changed the power supply even after two people advised you to.

How about after three?

Its ok that you want to get a high wattage power supply even though you don't need that Much. But, if your going to spend 190 Bucks on a power supply at least get a Better brand. Choose from this List.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103438
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341005
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817811007
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104026
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817608006
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817256009
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139002
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703005
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151030

Out of those I would choose between the PC Power and Cooling, Etasis or Corsair.

Again, if you want to spend that Much money on a high wattage power supply, I won't stop you, but everything I posted is better than the TT for the same price or less.

Good Choice, The 620 Watt version is one of the best.

hes made it pretty clear that he wants a larger watt one.

The corsair he chose is for lack of better words, simply amazing.
