  1. I'm building my first computer, and this is what it is going to be. I have helped my friend build his, but this is all on me. I can't wait, no seriously, I’m excited.

    This is the new Case I'm getting, tell me what you think, don't be fooled by the price.

    This is the Mobo I'm getting, it's VERY affordable, and a very good design.

    And I’m taking my original HD's from my old computer to put into this one. Same goes for the ROM’s, oh, and my 512 x 2 = 1GB Kingston RAM.

    Well, Ideas? Thoughts? Concerns? Anything else I can put into a question mark?

    Ok, well, just make sure your HD is compatible with your new mobo, also, your PSU chice is good, but the case comes with a PSU. Otherwise, great build! :D

    Get a single 7900GT, it will yeild about the same performance as 2 7600GT's, and the future option for SLI. 7900GS's are good too.

    I agree with F1N3ST. A single 7900GT will be better than 2 7600GTs and also will allow for SLI in future. It costs less too.

    XFX 7900GT $260

    You dont need a GFX card, get a integrated sw123, and you need windows XP.

    Im not very knowledgeable, but your case only has space for 1 fan.
    Do you think it will be able to keep your SLI setup cool enough to run safely?

    For office work that PC is great. You can use a lower graphics card if you want to because ordinary office applications do not demand a lot from graphics cards. Do you already have a hard drive? I notice you didn't list one.

    Oh I missed the HD, but we have a 10 GB with my dad's data on it, so were going to use that, and also is there a PCI SCSI controller anywhere?

    Heres a link to the new HDD:

    Also, the heavy GFX card is for my sister because she plays lots of games on the old computer the new one is going to replace by christmas.

    Perhaps you guys can tell me what I can do to help finance(I'm 12)

    Cheers, sw123
