    Don't cheap out on the PSU. Logisys will blow up on you. Get OCZ, Antec, or Corsair. Here's a MUCH BETTER BUILD.,3032.html Will be much more powerful than the build you have made yourself.
  2. +1 on not getting that power supply. If you really have to save a little cash..try this one, there is an additional $5.00 off with promo code til 10-31, and then after rebate it is only 29.99
  3. Thank you so much! Thats a fantastic $500 build samuelspark linked. I will go with that one. Cheers
