    I just got that EVGA 7950GT KO and you're gonna need a new heatsink for it, it runs hot. I recommend the Thermalright HR-03 Rev A, never over 46C. :chef:

    I would change the Hitachi PATA for Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB ST3320620AS SATA-II 16MB Cache As > Here

    That PSU is complete garbage. Try the Antec SmartPower 500W PSU on Newegg instead. Its of better quality. Also, the X1950PRO is an equally good (and sometimes better, depending on the game) performer than the 7950GT, and cheaper too if I remember correctly. I wasn't able to check the prices or give you any links because Newegg's site seems to be down at the time I'm typing this out. Also, I agree with Cyberbabe's recommendation of the Seagate drive, compared to the Hitachi drive, just for the fact that it's more widely used and I don't know anyone who's used a Hitachi drive. Check it out and see for yourself.
