    Yeah, that would have been Thanks, booked for later

    It was an NX570X

    Anyways, where'd you get those specs for the ASUS M3A32-MVP? That board only has support for DDR2-1066, hell you can tell just by the socket it uses. Get DDR2-1066, it will actually be faster as the timings will be tighter, plus it should be cheaper. Plus it will work when you put it in, so that's always a plus

    Also try getting a 9600GT. It's only $20 more , you'll have PS 4.0 support, DX10 (lol) and overall a much faster card.

    Heh, just don't get confused when you actually buy everything and you will be ok

    Is this a budget build? Any spending limits? And yeah, totally get a 9600GT

    Other than that, everything looks good except that your CPU may be a bit of a bottleneck

    If by a while you mean about 3 years, then definitely. Longer, it's kind of a tough call

    3 years is good enough for me.... i dont plan on doing anything cutting edge with it.... most of the time my desktop pc just sits there anyway

    also, im familiar with the AVIVO and VIVO technologies from ATI.... nvidia offers something similar im sure, does this card support it, etc?

    You're getting yourself in trouble then. In the next couple of months, you will pay 2/3 the price you're paying for all this. Wait till you have enough money then come back.
    CPU is a bottleneck btw. Power supply I wouldn't even think about buying this.
    Memory you can get better deals for that amount.

    As much as I love this mac, I think I'm going to not buy the Adobe Software for this one time until I get the money. I just spent it on an IPS panel and this 8 core.

    That being said, anybody knows what I need in order to get XP back in my life and into this machine? I have the OEM disc at home if that helps (yes I paid for that one).

    A quad or a better dual core would be okay.

    Why? Only two 12V rails, at 15A and 16A each. This doesn't give you much room for future upgrades. Besides, Rosewill isn't any close to being a quality power supply brand.
    There's much better power supplies available out there for less than $25 more. Take into consideration that your power supply is probably the most strained component in your system and the maths are pretty easy to do.

    I'm thinking of buying a Celeron for £12, using a stick of 256mb ddr2 ram and my old Abit IP-95 motherboard and building a spare computer for a different room.

    Integrated 16M graphics, 256mb ram and a 2.6GHz Celeron, probably an 80GB IDE hard drive.

    I'm glad you caught that, I wasn't even paying attention. Tired panda was tired last night :O

    Also, consider the fact that if something happens to the PSU it can take the entire rig down with it :O

    Not really, all I can tell you is to partition the disks and boot from the CD
