I wanted to have enough juice for an 8800GTX if he wanted to go to a high res LCD. He was actually consider a Samsung 26" WS, but said his wife would probably opt for a DLP for the bedroom before he could get the new monitor. Just my reasoning for that PSU!

And that reasoning is as solid as that PSU

hey Chozart, you need to find out if there's a specific emoticon that can be made for you to use as a stamp!!

I would be the "other member" that Chozart mentioned.

So far, I'm *very* impressed with this rig! I just ran Orthos for 2 hours and both cores stayed at 41/40c with a momentary touch to 42c. They are clocked at 2.66ghz (333fsb) right now - I think after a little break in, I'll see if I can bump that up a little bit since this sucker is staying very cool.

At any rate, I'm sure your customer is going to be very pleased. Nice build!

Oh, and Chozart, I found an image you could use: http://www1.istockphoto.com/file_thu...oved_stamp.jpg
