Hello, I'm looking to build my first computer. This will be used for web surfing, home video editing, and a little gaming. I don't plan on overclocking. I just started looking and this is what I came up with. I was thinking of getting the 8500 Duo processor also. Is there a big difference between the 9400 Quad (2.66 GHz) and the 8500 Duo (3.16 GHz) for my applications? Also, Is my power supply overkill? Thanks Wheelz ( I already have a monitor, keyboard and mouse)

Thanks a bunch dirt and shortstuff. I don't plan on crossfire, so I think I will take your advice dirt and get a smaller power supply. I will change my DVD and harddrive to shortstuffs recommendations. From my research on the web, I think I will go with the quad for sure. On I side note. Since I'm planning on going with Vista 64 bit. The only issue I think I might have is with my old HP printer, scanner, copier.(6 years old). Are there driver updates for something this old?
