  1. Swap the board for the Asus P5B

    Swap the ram for some OCZ Gold 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2-800

    And whatever you do..... DON'T BUY from Tiger Direct.

    Everything else looks good... enjoy the new rig.
  2. I decided to go with this case:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16811129155

    The Antec SONATA II. I had a question though, will the 450w power supply be ample for my system or should I still get the 550w power supply? And also this is my first time building so what other little things do I need? I have down on my list of things to get:
    Thermal Paste - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835100007
    Cable Cover - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16812999101
    Anti-static wristband - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16899888207
    Mouse - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16826104178

    I need a NIC and do I need a CPU fan? If I do what is a good one, and the same with the NIC. What is a good one. Is there anything else I need? I have a monitor and I can't think of anything else. Should I put more fans in the case?
  3. You won't need a NIC, its on the motherboard.
  4. yeah you could use a more powerful video card and then maybe buy a new heatsink and OC a 6400

    Have you had problems in the past with Tiger Direct? I have made roughly 20 orders through them and have had zero problems. Support was easy to work with the one time I accidently ordered two of the same item, they quickly cancelled it and my items shipped out later the same day. Let me know if you have had problems, I always like to know why I would heed a warning before I acknowledge one.
  6. Thanks for the responses guys. Should I buy the 550w power supply or stick with the 450w power supply that is in the case.
