  1. nice that u waited on the power supply and the vid card, cause sometimes the vid card of today will have an extra 4 pin molex power connector.

    U def need a PCI express card :)

    and a 600 W psu will be enuf.

    See if ur case builder has a 600 W recommend on their site.

    What game u gonna be playing? how about SWG:empire divided? i been playing it fer 3 yrs :)
  2. 8600 Ultra, or comparable RD600...

    On the video card if you buy a EVGA they have a step-up program where you can upgrade within 90 days.
    That helped me make my decision a few hours ago.
  4. Yes, (eVGA) 8600 Ultra releases in Q2
  5. thanks for informing me on the 90 day upgrade because of that i think i am gonna go with evga
