I have and all the essentials (GTX 260 gfx card, HDD, DVD drives)
I use my PC for 3D & audio/video/image processing, also some gaming.

Also will my Rosewill 550w supply be strong enough? Im not planning to OC or SLI.

Thank you.

    ^ Good list...
    But some changes to save good money...
    Get this RAM + Mobo combo...
    1. GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 + 2. CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    Same feature mobo as that ASUS and the RAM has better timings...

    CASE - I know its more of personal preference but do take a look at this case...
    HAF 922

    Wow awesome find on the combo! Thank you very much.

    That case is rather sexy. My main concern was space... my gtx 260 is a beast. You think It'll be fine?
  3. The HAF can accomodate even the HD 5970 - ~13" long...
    Here is a 10.5" card in that case...
