Hopefully someone else out there can find one that will fit the 1156 socket and performs nicely. m 0 l mavanhel October 6, 2009 2:04:36 PM Sorry, forgot the optical drive, but build has put up a nice one. Also, the Antec 300 might do you well unless you do some heavy overclocking and do Xfire, since that will create a lot more heat. m 0 l buckley007 October 14, 2009 7:44:48 AM thanks for the suggestions, i think this is whatll go with unless someone has good reason to suggest otherwise. this way, leave it open for crossfire in the future.
