First mATX build, advice?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be using this in a design studio (i'm an architecture student), which I'm told gets pretty hot with all the computers in there. I think there's going to be upwards of 60 students using it, not always at once though.

Its gotta be able to run Revit, AutoCAD, and 3d Studio MAX, among other things. Those three are probably the most hardware intensive.

This is what I've been looking at. I'm not sure about the case, I really only picked it because it looked like it will fit the video card. I wasn't sure if the Apevia QPACK would fit it or I would probably go with that.


Case: NZXT ROGUE click
Motherboard: ASUS P5E-VM click
Video Card: EVGA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB click
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 click
RAM: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 click (Mostly cuz it is blue and matches the color of the fan lights )
Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB click


I need advice on a power supply. No idea what to get.

Looks like a pretty solid build.

Also, the QPack does fit a full size/length graphics card. I just built a system with that case.

Well after some thought I think I'm going to stick with the Rogue. I didn't put any thought into the length of the cables on the power supply, I'll have to look into that. Thanks fellas!
