  1. hey! i just finished ordering parts for my new computer :) i was wondering how good this is for the money, and if overall its a good system.
    the specs
    evga 7800 gtx
    amd 64 3500 venice processor
    an abit an8 nforce 4 sli motherboard (sli ready for the future)
    2x512 mb of ocz 2 latency 2-2-2-5 timing ram w/heatspreader in dual channel
    a 500 watt smart power supply from antec
    a tsunami dream case (black)
    a veiwsonic g90f crt moniter
    a 160 gb western digital hard drive
    $1300 us dollars
    i was also wondering if i should use the heatsink and fan that the processor comes with, or if i should by a different one. i dont plan on overclocking the processor right away, only when my games start playing bad (it would also void the warrenty of my processor).

    the only weak spot I see is the power supply. Antec failed the Tom's hardware test.

    what did you say was wrong with the power supply? 500 should be fine.

    I don't think any games will start going bad for a while so I wouldn't overclock it just shortens the life of the processor.
