Other than that...:

Sure man. That article would be great. Are you saying though, that even though he's deaf, he should get an audigy to reduce processing power O_o? That seems a little weird.

Thanks for the info on the disc drive. I'll think about it, but I really do not want to get him the NUUO... Modular PSUs... bleck. The Seasonic was one of the best PSUs to survive the TomsHardware stress test.
Nope, no reason I see why not to get the Venus (Opteron).

Why not the NUUO? Just becuase its modular? If he's trying to save money I'd suggest it, but the SeaSonic is great, as TomsHardware has proven, and so have other companies.

The only thing I woudl probably do is change it from a Seasonic S12 600W to a 500W... but since I'm trying to future-proof this just a little bit by keeping the possibility of SLI, and just for stability reasons in general, I think it's worth it to get the 600W for just 20 more bucks.

It's not "just because it's modular" though... Modular supplies never seem to have as good voltage stability and I'd rather just stick with the tried and true for my friend. I know the Seasonic will be reliable, so I want to get him that. I really want to get him the best parts because he's not going to be wanting to troubleshoot instability problems etc. I might go out on a limb for myself, but not for him.

Oh ok, I have absolutley no doubts whatsoever about SeaSonic, and if I had the money, I'd choose a SeaSonic over a Sunbeam NUUO any day, but the NUUO is the perfect high powered, budget power supply that does the job and some, and the seasonic is amazingly stable.

I really do like my OCZ PowerStream though, I have to say, I would choose this power supply over any other, mostly because of the stability, and rail adjustments, but the downfall of this psu is the fans, its got 2x 80mm fans, and their cfm's are soo low, that you can hardly feel the air. I think they're in the 5-10CFM range, but the inside 80mm fan might be more.

But yea dude, SeaSonic all the way.

I meant that the sound would require less processing power, and thus overall game performance would go up. I hope that helps.

attached are the pages from the Ultimate PC 2005 article:

Well heres what I would do. Say get this deal which contains a 7800gt and a 600watt x-finity for only $299. And the COD2 which comes with the 7800gts.
