Default Tripple check this build please



Anything you would change on this build?
I am putting it together for a friend.

edit:

Probably will use an antec 300 instead of the lian li.

The 9800GT requires a minimun of a 400 watt power supply. The 450 watt unit you picked will work but you'll still be running it hard. Sort of like driving a car at 80mph everywhere you go even thou the car has a max speed of 90mph. It will work but it may not last long.

This is a little more initially but it's about the same price after a rebate, it's 600 watts and Modular

hi,

get this optical drive instead

Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners

edit: i wouldnt say completely avoid "green" drives, but i heard that they sometimes lack performance to conserve energy. if you want something of the same price get

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

but if you want it for the 750gigs, get this, its $10 more

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

Thanks, I took those suggestions and since none of them are mandatory I left it up to the person I am building it for to decide (I probably will at the least replace the dvd drive and HDD). I did hear that about the green drives and I am glad you suggested it, and I hate skimping out on PSU's so I will probably get that OCZ.
