Default New System

Hey, I'm looking into getting a comp with this setup from NCIX.com (Canadian):

Case: Thermaltake Xaser 3 V2000A

Processor: AMD Athlon64 FX-51 Processor

Motherboard: ASUS SK8N Opteron Nforce3 Pro

Memory: 2x Corsair CMX512RE-3200LL DDR 512 PC3200 ECC Registered

Hard Drive: 2x WD Raptor 36 GB SATA 10000 RPM 5.2MS 8MB

Floppy: 1.44 MB High Density Floppy Drive

Video Card: ATI Radeon 9800XT 256 MB AGP VGA

DVD-ROM: Artec 16x DVD-ROM Int. IDE Clear W/ 3 LEDs

Heatsink: Zalman CNPS7000A-ALCU

Power Supply: Vantec Stealth 470W Black Aluminum w/ 3 Temp. Control Fans

Sound Card: Creative Soundblaster Audigy2 ZS Gamer Limited Edition PCI Model # SB0350

CD Writer: LiteOn 52x32x52 ATAPI IDE CD-RW Smart-Burn

Keyboard: Logitech Cordless MX Duo MX700 Mouse Keyboard


I'm pretty sure everything is compatible, but does someone want to go over it and give me some feedback?

My only concern is the heatsink, which I think may be too big and will cover the AGP slot, as some reviews for the mobo on newegg said....but NCIX will build and test it for free so I'll leave it up to them.

Mine is just a few months of overtime as well, that’s a nice looking system, though I am still not sure about the merits of a 64 bit processor.
