The Order's All Set...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, I think I'm ready to punch in my card and get the order going, but I wanted some advice first. This is my first build, and I'm trying to save as much money as possible. I got a free case and a 520 watt PS from work. I'm pretty sure the PS will be fine, I just have to buy an LP4 to 6-pin PCIE for the video card. I guess I'm looking for suggestions on what I'm picking up and if it seems like the right stuff. Thanks in advance!

Looks good, that videocard comes with the adapter you need for 6pin. I think it does anyway..

Oh, word? Thanks, didn't even notice that.

Also, is it worth it to get a quad core and future proof? I'm debating.

Do remember that the video card requires amps more importantly then watts. So you might be risking a headache if you dont take the time to invest in a good powersupply.
