Would I survive?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got some decisions to make: I have a chaintech vnf4 ultra board sitting here, I want to buy this stuff here: (newegg prices)
3700 SD 233$
2x512mb G. Skill (TCCD) 151.82$
evga 6600gt 139$

Big Typhoon 43$ -ewiz

A good 24-pin PSU.
I may not have the $ to buy a video card and PSU until I part out my current rig, my concerns are: will a 20 pin PSU be ok for a while or does it only take a 24 pin & I doubt it but would there be any problems w/using a PCI card until I could get the 6600gt or better. (I think its a tnt2 8mb card or something.. lol)

Supposedly it'll work. However me being nit-picky, I know there is a reason for the extra four pins being there and they have to be filled for me to feel comofortable with the system.

So yes it will work, but I think it's best to have all the slots filled.

Several members have had great OCing on that MB.
You might consider an Opty 939 model 146 w/a 10x and the 1M cache ... the below steppings OC as well as the SD 3700+ and might save you a few dollars
From another member, sorry, I forgot who.
1.) CABNE any up to 0540
2.) CABYE 0540
3.) CABNE 0540
4.) CABYE other than 0540
5.) CAB2E

But do avoid the "CABGE"

On the PS... Sunbeam NUUO550 is well recieved in many reviews and very popular and hard to find but is an excellent PS for about $75-80.
