Hey guys I was gonna buy the Dell Inspiron Slim 530s and give it a new case (you might have read my earlier post regarding that) and, as i said, i was going to trick it out a bit. Here's what i wanted to replace in the system to make it silenter and cooler: 500+W Noiseless or Close-to-Noiseless Power Supply (Under 40$, if possible) Silent CPU Fan (Nothing to special, could be anywhere from 5-18$, est.) Better Graphics Card (I'm thinking the HIS IcePro Radeon X1650 256MB or better, now that my system has (or will have) a PCIex16 slot -yah!) Possibly better sound card (Creative SoundMax X-treme Audio or X-treme Gamer) Some Power Supplies I was looking at were these: http://www.directron.com/rs450acly.html http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=PSAP550&cat=CAS http://www.zalman.co.kr/eng/product/view.asp?idx=240&code=015 And the Fans: http://www.zalman.co.kr/eng/product/view.asp?idx=197&code=016 http://www.zalman.co.kr/eng/product/view.asp?idx=231&code=005 http://www.directron.com/80l1a.html And the Cards: http://www.hisdigital.com/html/product_ov.php?id=250&view=yes http://us.creative.com/products/product.asp?category=1&subcategory=208&product=15855 http://us.creative.com/products/product.asp?category=1&subcategory=208&product=15853 That's about it for hardware, as some of it was mentioner in my earlier post) If anyone has some other suggestions or don't think these are the right things, please reply. NOW TO THE REAL POINT OF THE ARTICLE Wow so great i'm gonna get this system and soup it up the best i can, but after moving it to a custom case (for suggestions, please reply in my previous post) , obvisouly i, as a teenager, want some sweet neon and LED decor. So I'm wondering whether these 5$ 12" neon sticks I see are really that good or if I'll buy them, find that they don't work, and get angry. These cool-looking lo-tech extras are sometimes hard to find that are actually worth the money. Here's everything I wanted and can i please get some feedback on whether these are good or not?: Neon/Cold Cathode Lights: http://www.directron.com/lzbupcgre.html http://www.directron.com/ccflgreen.html http://www.directron.com/ccfl303uv.html LED: http://www.directron.com/mdled5bl.html UV Fans: http://www.directron.com/dfs802512m.html http://www.directron.com/centarus2.html Lighted Mouse: http://www.directron.com/lightedmouseb.html Lighted Keyboard: (These looked pretty awsome) http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=MM-WG-2160-WB&cat=KYB http://www.directron.com/el7151.html NOT like I'm buying 3 fans or 5 neon sticks or 2 keyboards. I'm only showing some I have in mind. Also (as if this post isn't long enough!), can someone explain to me what exactly a heatsink is and refer one to me compatible with the Dell Inspiron 530s??? THANKS TO ALL WHO REPLY TO THIS GIANT POST!
