Ram: Mushkin Enhanced 1GB PC3200 128x64 DDR 184Pin (dual channel 512)

(saw that people have been having these work for them and i'm not planning on OCing too much)

HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 SATA NCQ 3.5" Serial ATA150

Monitor: ViewSonic VA712B-1 Black 17" 8ms LCD (one other one i'm looking at but not sure if its as good or better. this moniter is a TFT LCD the other one is an Active Matrix/TFT LCD (not sure if thats better or worse). welp thats the build (also keep in mind i'm not planning on OCing to extreme on this build maybe a little bit to enhance gaming performance but not much) let me know what you guys think and feel free to add suggestions :D

don't need the space i'm only using this comp for games (i only load 2 to 3 games at a time) i'm doing another build for multimedia stuff and push comes to shove i won't use more than 10 to 15gbs of space on this comp for multimedia so the 80gb will be fine (actually more than enough space).

as far as the montor goes i was thinking about going to a bigger 19" lcd but for the gaming comp its not as important (to me at least i'm currently using a 17" CRT and i've read reviews on numerous LCD of people switching from larger CRTs (some as big as 21") and liking the smaller LCDs way better). i am planning on buying a larger moniter later on for the multimedia build.

i can vouch that that PSU is a really really good one..

even with my stuff @ over 3.0ghz and my video card clocked high.

w/ 3.5volts to the ram.. the rails never budge. totally solid.. now since ive owned this one.. i would never goto another kind.

Awsome i have heard many good thinks about them and OCZ in general around here lol everyone has talked me out of the thermaltake dual 12v i was gonna get. but as you read post you notice the vast majority of everyone around here has an OCZ psu so i figure they have to be one of the top 5 psus for running an SLI rig. :nod:
