Hoepfully that PSU can handle any future updates.

But overall it is very good hardware, have fun setting it up The setup can sometimes be just as important as the hardware.

kangaroo, I posted what i posted cuz i guess to me the only thing that matters is whether or not my score with gaming, which boils down to good graphics, processor, ram etc syncronization.
