  1. $160 for a 650 watt psu ?
    You can do much better price wise, though you really don't need that much power.
    Here's 2 of the best rated 650's out there

    Single or multi rail is not an issue.
  2. Those look nice and closer to my budget do u have a good one thats not modular that usually seems to add like 20-30 dollars to the price and i dont mind a couple extra cables in the case

    i looked at this one http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4494091&sku=A406-1116
    most of the reviews on it look good but i dont really know much about xion

  4. Thanks that one looks good ill get it

    If any of you guys know anything about tv tuner cards that would help me out alot too because most of the ones under 250 that i see are bad reviews and driver problems are there any tv tuners 100 and under you would recommend i will be using windows 7 with this computer
  5. but one question ,will you ever consider running 2 graphics cards?
  6. maybe in the distant future but for now one graphics card would do me fine

    and it dont know if running a second graphics card on that motherboard would work right because it splits the slots down to x8,x8

    Modular doesn't really add that much to the cost anymore.
