RE: First PC Build
That's good to know. I may replace it in the future for another reason - it doesn't have Crossfire (or SLI) support. So I wanted to add a second video card at some point, I would need to change the PSU. With the 6950 2GB, I shouldn't need to do that too soon.

Does the rest of the system look solid? Its not an exact build that you provided, but I used the build guide quite extensively it helping me understand and pick components.

I picked up a monitor today - an ASUS 23.6" that was on sale. I actually want two of them, but I had enough restraint to hold back. I will use that along with the old Samsung 19" I have so that I have dual minitors right away.

So long as the last shipment gets here by the weekend, that is what I will spend the weekend doing. The plan is to do most of the build myself, but have my buddy (who has done builds himself before) come double check everything and help me go through BIOS for the first time, then install Windows.
