    Aside from the fact its using Intel.... j/k

    Hmm, the only thing I might be concerned about is the Rosewill powersupply.

    I have a BUNCH of Rosewill stuff and have had nothing but good luck with it.

    However, none of it is a component that if it dies could fry my comp. So, I'm not a hater, I'm just not sure I'd power my rig with one of their power supplies. That said, something "better" could still be a lemon and go out too.

    Nothing like looking at a build on newegg.

      You're buying a board that has 3 SLI slots but you are buying a pretty cheap video card. I would probably look for a board with 2 slots and get a better video card.

        I just threw that PSU in quick. I was looking at a few on tiger direct that weren't available on Newegg, but I'll likely change it out anyways...

          Yeah, its totally preference, but when I built my el cheapo machine I got, my PSU was the 2nd most expensive thing after my mobo, just cause I want this machine to last and last and last.

          Of course I have a dell optiplex upstairs with the original dell PSU from 2001 that still works fine and those were pretty big pieces of crap, so, hey...its all good.

          Early happy new computer day.

            With a 1366 socket it doesn't get much cheaper. I would only be saving about $40 by going with the cheapest alternative, but then I'm loosing the lifetime warranty on the EVGA board. oke:

            edit: This board is by EVGA, is a bit cheaper, but has 4 slots. so...

                  9800s are totally meh, just a heads up. Had one, it sucked. This was also when they were brand new. They may have rectified some of the problems by now.

                      That's why I brought up the motherboard thing... I had one as well and I had some issues with it and Supreme Commander...
