Check this out if you wanted some RAM. This is an incredible deal right now.

Otherwise, the build looks good.

Well, about the OS, did you ever have the key actually work/installed for the dell system? Because I'm using my old Acer disk with my new setup and for the first time ever, I didn't have to call in to activate vista, the key actually worked. Maybe you'd get lucky too and save some cash. But anyway, enjoy the new system, I wish I had money for a 750FTW

I do believe Rocketfish PSUs sucked. I think you actually might want to change that out for something higher quality.

no it is surprisingly good quality, their old line sucked, I agree, but their more recent line is much better built than any of their old power supplies.

Definitely go with that Corsair Dominator deal.

If you are comfortable with Rocketfish that is fine, but PC P&C and Corsair imo are top of the line.

I would deffinately switch that PSU for a corsair or pc power and cooling, both can be had for under 100 bucks at the moment for the 750w Model. Psu is the most important part of a pc build to me, as it can take out other stuff with it if it blows.

bump, thanks for the advice but I believe it will be ok (as i am on a budget i am limited).

Update on that build log that I promised. I will be making a new thread directing you to the pictures. There are also pictures of a case mod that I am preforming.

Go HERE to see the log
