half the links dont work and dont get that GFX card, wait for the DX10's, as the prices of all the other cards will fall

The Build looks good, but if you're getting a 7900-series card, get an eVGA if you are planning on getting an 8-series video card in the next 90 days, that way you can use the money you spent on the card towards the purchase of an 8-series with eVGA's step-up program.

If you can save up, the <a href="http://www.canadacomputers.com/index.php?do=ShowProduct&cmd=pd&pid=011309&cid=MB.157" target="_blank">p5b</a> will overclock much better.

Thanks guys, all those links work on my part, sorry if they dont work for you. So go for the evga instead, gotcha. I dont need UBER top of the lineness, thats why I only did ddr667 ram, and a GS model 7900. This is going to be built this summer, so we'll see how the prices go down and what arises.

Don't get the modstream, get this instead<br><br><a href="http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=19832&vpn=CMPSU-520HX&manufacture=CORSAIR" target="_blank">http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...acture=CORSAIR</a><br><br>
It might be cheaper to order everything from NCIX, you won't have to pay PST(8%)

I *highly* suggest you skip out on the modstream and get the Corsair I linked to, the modstream is unreliable and overpriced.

Don't get the Modstream. I know very little about the Corsair, but try a PSU like this:<br />

The Corsairs are made by Seasonic<br />
<br />
I mentioned in another thread the shady specs OCZ uses for their GameXStream series, depending how much load is put on the +3.3v and +5v rails it would be better to get the Corsair.

</div>just to save you some money, i know it isnt a hell lot, but it adds up in shipping and taxes. besides, usually when u buy in the CC store, they give discounts if your buying quite a bit. =)

I would pick a X1950 Pro over a 7900GS, unless you really want to go with nVidia.
