  3. I shared my personal NewEgg wish list, and when I click that link it works... Does it work for you all? If not what else can I do?
  4. The system is nice. Are you going to OC the CPU?
    If not, the DDR2-1067 is useless and you better get a DDR2-667 and invest the difference in something else. If you are not going to OC, the stock cooler is more than enough. Also, the Zalman 9700 is not a good choice, try Scythe Ninja or Thermaltake TunqTower 120.
  5. Yes I do intend on OCng it, mildly at first, I figure that running it at 9x 334MHz will be sufficient and as time goes by will up it to 9x 400MHz which at 3.2GHz should compute just about anything I need...
    But most important to me is stability, of course performance is important too, just not at the sacrifice of stability.
  6. 3 things should be changed IMO.

    Instead of the IceQ3 1950xt get a Sapphire 1950xt and an HR-03 with a fan. The card will run muuuuuuuuch cooler and will be quiter (depending on the fan you get.).

    Sapphire 1950xt - $210
    Thermalright HR-03 - $44

    Instead of the Thermaltake psu get a Silverstone OP750, more power, better quality, same price.

    Finally, the obvious, get a Tuniq Tower 120 or Thermalright Ultra 120 instead of the Zalman 970
