Windows 7: Advice on First and New build

Windows 7 Ultimate 64

You must take a look and read the reviews on this great board. I'm seeing for around $135.00 and with your 3.2 quad and the 8 gigs of ram it will scream and OC very well. This is the board I'm considering for my next build. No legacy stuff on it as well which cleans up the topography a lot. Oh and please as mentioned don't go cheap on the PSU it's the heart of the system and later this board because of the Fusion technology you can any second GPU later and gain the benefits of hybrid SLI !

"Open Box" means that NewEgg only guarantees that the motherboard is in the box. There may be no I/O shield included. It's not vital, but I'd want the shield.

The GTX 460 768MB card is significantly more powerful than the GTS 450. It costs a bit more, and you'd want a PSU that can supply two 6 pin PCI-E power connectors. (That may inspire you to get a less cheesy power supply than the one that you list, which has a single 6+2 pin PCI-E connector, and two 12V rails at 22A each, which is unimpressive for a "750W" PSU.)

For the system you're building a 750 watt power supply is a bit much. You might consider saving a little money by going with a quality 550-650 one instead.

And as everyone has suggested...... DO NOT SKIMP ON A POWER SUPPLY!!!

Sorry for the shouting, but this can not be stressed enough.

Good luck.
