bottom line, you'll be disappointed with your comp

1.) you HAVE to get the 6600gt; the 9600 pro just won't do it (i've seen it's benchmarks since my friend has one)
2.) that case and power supply sucks; you need a case that has good air flow and a psu that will actually last a while, not some generic crap from rosewill

yes, that'll probably be another two hundred dollars, but it's gonna be $200 well spent, and if you don't have the money - save up until you do, because hurrying to buy a comp won't do u any good

I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.
