  1. I see you got a PS/2 mouse port, that is great mate.

    At school we, in our early ages, learn to ask questions by starting by hello and finishing by thanks.
    I bet you didn't go to school.

    Using 400 watts you won't go far if you want to play games.
    Also a bugdet would be nice.

    Otherwise I'd say grab a gtx 580 ?!?!
