New printers usually have a USB interface. And yeah. As far as I remember the modstream is 24 pin. Thinking of getting one myself.

id bump the hdd down to 160 or 120, a SATA will work on SATA II
the 6800gt is worth it imho, but the 6600gt is a kickass value card. always get eVGA video cards,
also how's this for psu+case?

Umm that case is not so good because thermaltake power supplys are not good. PCP&W is the best and if you cant afford that get antec.

Thermaltake are great PSU's and are the best value PSU in the world.

PCP&W is just the best, not much value their
