  1. I'm kind of new to this but your Mother Board has PCIe 2.0 and the Video card is PCIe 2.1 Is that compatible?
  2. No... there were some slight revisions done for 2.1, but its all backwards compatible! You're good to go. By the way... thats an INCREDIBLE deal on that powersupply combo with the video card! 165 after rebates for both! WHAT WHAT!!!!

    I'd order 2 more 120mm fans for the side panel (if it has slots for them, why not use them!) - and another 120mm fan for the top 'blowhole'

    These dont need to be expensive fans... as you're system isnt going to run hot anyway... but for another $3 bucks per fan or so, might as well spend the extra $9 dollars to add them anyway!
  3. Here's a link to the exact same hard drive just a couple bucks cheaper after shipping and handlin is done.

  4. actually its not cheaper... theres a $15 promo code with that one... knocking it down to the same price at $40. Good look tho goofy, both are pretty solid deals
  5. Okay I am gonna go ahead and order my parts and thanks again for all the help.
