Just throw it in a pile of saw dust or maybe leave it in a mechanics garage for a couple weeks.

No, its awesome that it doesnt have any comm ports or lpt ports.. They're like floppy drives, everyone has them.. But no one really needs them. I was commenting about SLI, because for the price you're paying you can get a single card sli setup. So you can expand to an additional video card later.

I think this might be the final product, unless there is something that you guys think I should change, thanks to everyone who helped me with this and so fast!

EDIT

I think I do see an error that, an AGP slot video card, and the motherboard doens't have an AGP slots, so I'll have to get a PCI-Express? Right?

You need a PCI-E video card. Some options include the PCI-E version of the 6600, the PCI-E version of the 6800, x800 xl PCI-E, etc.

Trying to conserve money, I'm a little over :O, The PCI-E, 1 of them isn't in stock and the other is $399, just have to wait a little I guess, Whats the difference between OEM, BAREBONE, and just a normal video card? or products?
