I still need to spec ram and would also like to know what cables, fans and general odds and sods I may need to complete the build.

The Earthwatts PSU is trustworthy. FYI, all the accessories, screws, etc. come in the case. You'll need a medium Phillips ("Crosshead") screwdriver at a minimum. And maybe a pair of needle-nose pliers. rwpritchett September 24, 2008 4:26:26 PM What about an operating system and RAM? Also, you'll want to either get a remote or else change your case to the Antec Veris Fusion which looks like the NSK2480, but comes bundled with a remote and front display.
