Awesome! Will do. I found a nice 20" hp 900p monitor on Craig's for $60. So if it works out ima get that and make an nice enclosure too.

Some Pics are up of adapter and GPU in the OP

but heres my concern. i bought a 6a PSU, and on the board near the power ssupply input, it says 3.0a?

you think it will be alright? how many amps does a normal PSU push in? i thought it was 5.5a

It should be fine, The card will draw what it needs, no more. A PC PSU can vary depending on its ratings, 20A and up for 12V.

Here's a place to start, then try Amazon and eBay. Project Enclosure (8x6x3) : Project Boxes | RadioShack.com

you might want to make a mock-up up an enclosure with cardboard taped together to get an idea for size and component placement inside. I would add a simple on/off toggle switch to it so you can wait till the PC is on.
