Get something better then that Xcilo peice of crap, this is a much better unit, and it doesnt cost that much more.

If you can swing another $30 the 7600gt becomes an option, much more powerful then the x800gto, and it support SM 3.0.

Other then that it looks good.

Good stuff! Have fun with it! I would suggest Shin-Etsu thermal paste over AS5. It has been proven to be better in air cooling applications.

Apt403 is right on, both with the piece of crap and with the solution.
