Toss the rest of your parts in with those. That will get you far more pperformance and stability. Your chosen power supply is quite poor and would likely die trying to power that 4870... if it even had the connections to try.
Cheers for your recommendations, i made up the list below from what you have recommended. Do you think it would be better if i got some sort of extra cooling? (CPU for example) just coz i have read a little about the heat the HD4870 produces.
Thermaltake Smart Case Fan 12CM
Western Digital 500G SATAII 7200 rpm HDD(16Mb Cache)
Thermaltake Soprano DX Steel with Window Black NO Power Supply
LG H20NS10 SATA 20X+- Super Multi DVD Rewriter Black with Software
Intel ATX E8400 CORE 2 DUO /3.0GHz/6MB/1333FSB/LGA775
I am just replying to my own post again as i had some more questions for anyone that can help me...
With the rig i stated above would that be good enough to run alot of the high end games (at a relatively high setting with 1680x1050 res) comming out soon?? ie.. Farcry 2 and Crysis Warhead etc..
because i was considering that i should change a few parts so i could add upgrades along the way ie. Running 2 4870s in crossfire... But would this mean i should consider a better case and better cooling?
