It will not power up my ASUS P5E-K WiFI mobo with Asus EN9600GT video card. When I hit the power button I do not get anything. After chang...

I wanted to get the most bang out of the buck and still want to stay passively cooled. And the new SLI Mobo is only $50 more than the none SLI one I was looking at. The only catch right now is I don't know how DX10 will play out in Windows Vista in terms of 7900 series (it's natively supported in 88...

Yeah I was going to do 120mm Nexus in the back and 1 or 2 92mm Nexus in the front.

My monitor is like 9 month old BenQ 19 inch LCD.

I'll assemble as soon as Windows XP Ultimate is officially out. http://www.campustech.com/c/campust/OEM ... LD1PK.html has it for $209 shipping "mid January."

Very nice config. I will definitely use Model One as template for my new PC. I would go with the new Samsung 500gb hard drives but otherwise similar config. Now if only my pathetic Athlon XP 1800+ POS 5 year old PC would just die.....
