More about just bought build guys think
  1. At least you changed the PSU from your last post. I guess I was to late for my 2 cents. You should be fine with it though. AHH wait you switched the video card on us? or did you need to rebudget for the PSU?
  2. Hey yeah i read your post after i purchased, i switch to the ATI because i went with the x38 motherboard, i will buy one of those Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 hard drives next month.
  3. good build... hope you can Xfire soon
  4. yeah, i will Xfire here soon, just waiting to finish out this semester of school to work more hours and add onto my system a little more
