Actually yeah I probably could. But is the armor a good case for this build? Also I want a 7900GTO but they won't be in stock soon enough so I'm going with the 7900GT. I just perfer nVidia I guess.

i would spend less on a case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811147038 and maybe spend less on a graphics card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814143049 for now and shop around in like 3 months for a DX10 card or maybe use that money for a E6400 or better and an P5B Deluxe...thats what im doin

Personally I don't think the e6400 is worth the extra money. And no offense, but I think that case is pretty ugly, get this instead! (Cooler Master Centurion 5)

I agree, spend a little less on video card to carry you over to DX10 (or price drops lol) That 7600GT looks like a good deal

edit: whoops, we're supposed to rate it 8/10

the 7600GT would be a LOT better

It all depends when you plan to upgrade again... personally, I think a 7900GS is a good choice, and will keep you happy for a year at least. I don't think the real need for DX10 cards arises before that.

No. Power consumption of those cards is about similar... and you'll need it when you upgrade to DX10

As long as you keep the temps down to "acceptable" levels, nothing can really go wrong when OCing
