what you guys think about that rig? any suggestions on what to change to make it a bit better..and is that good for ocing? i've seen a couple threads on Socket AM2 so i thought it would be decent. what you guys think?

Yes, i know the case comes with a PSU but its only 450watts so i got a different one.. plus i heard the reviews on that certain PSU that comes with the case isnt that good

I would get the 8800 gs for about $40 more. It would be worth it. 36" IDE cable???
I think there is a better cpu heatsink for the price. this is what a reviewer said: "The fan has a huge flaw. Look how there are no sides to the fan. Thats why this thing isnt cooling like it should fans have sides on them for a reason. It helps funnel the air where its supposed to go this one just blows it everywhere at random."

Probably go with this card myself, $149.99 after mir, gives close to 8800GT performance, and has more ram if you get a 20' or bigger monitor later.

Okay, didnt see that the card was PCI E 2.0 and 1.0 workable swapped out the graphics cards on there, any other suggestions.

Helping me find a good heatsink would be sweet ;D

No idea if you can see this, I put it on the public wish lists but it doesn't show up for some reason, anyways its a lot better build and $20 cheaper, the only thing I left out was the sound card.
