Building a new PC, I know the HDD I have chosen is ***, but its going to be a temp option till I upgrade to SSD, planing on putting the graphics card in a SLI setup at a later date also.

Looks reasonable. Can't tell if it's air or watercooled, but looks like water is an option with that case.
What was the question... is there a problem booting or something?

Get a better PSU the Cooler master is so so, Antec, Seasonic or Corsair comes first up on my mind. If it is for gaming I would suggest GTX460 over the GTS450.

Have not Purchased the parts yet, just hoped someone could point out if I made a mistake in the Items I chose to build my new PC out of, Incompatible hardware or anything like that. but think I have done a good job. still trying to work out if I can upgrade my graphics card now or will end up doing it later. just about at my limit for budget atm.


guess my biggest question would be about the Graphics card, does getting a second Nvidia 450 for SLI work out better in the long run than getting a 460 now
