Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I think I'll take the Platinum one, it's the cheapest and most popular so I'll get that one thanks for all the support. Marking as solved.

So you would choose XFX above the platinum series one, are the XFX really better in energy conservativity?
No. I'd choose the Seasonic.

The XFX is likely made by Seasonic, but I wouldn't expect it to be superior to the stuff Seasonic sells under its own brand name.

The definitive site for power supply information is Go there and look for reviews.

I'm not saying you need to change your PSU at all. That's up to you.

ok thank you, i'll take the seasonic because I'm an upgrade freak, I want everything ultra high end. also I want to save energy over the years so why not make one pc extremely strong and go with it for 5-10 years ^^

I'm gonna use the pc for Gaming & Adobe & 3D Studio Max and the Laptop for everything else - Movies/Browsing etc. that will save me some energy aswell

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

I'm a bit late to the party, but...

This is highly anecdotal, but I've had a couple of LiteOn burners give short lifetimes. There are other makers at about the same price point that I've hade better luck with (Asus, Samsung, Toshiba).

When it comes to cases, there are competing philosophies. An alternative to the HAF series would be:

SilverStone Technology Co., Ltd.- FT02

(Silverstone FT02). It has the I/O ports at the top of the case. (The motherboard is rotated 90 with respect to the usual.) Its main feature is unidirectional air flow, rather than a thousand fans. (I exaggerate for clarity.) It's weak in the front panel port area, and has no built-in USB3 ports. Otherwise, it's a good compromise between sturdiness and weight.

Thanks, about the LiteOn burner, I don't care about a dvd burner because I'm only gonna use it for driver cd's for when I buy parts but I haven't used a dvd in like 1-2 years now, I download every driver and every file and dump it on my 1 TB external.

About the casing, I'll stick with HAF X since I saw lots of people recommended it, also it seems pretty ok to me.
about the silverstone, i never expected such a weird design ahah, it seems promising but I'll stick to my popularity/score rating on Thanks anyway bobkn.

This PC will drain my money to 0 haha, totally worth it though.

Why is the Assembly folder/dir not in the system dir?
Just curious, but why is the Assembly folder/dir not included in the Windows system files? Is this folder/dir the Assembly programming language? I am obviously not a software guru, but I've wondered about this for a while and know there is someone here who knows the answer! Thanks!

I'm not sure what to do here. My printer jammed and I needed to take the fuser out to remove the paper completely. However, in the process the unit fell apart (I opened it) and now I can't figure out how to piece it back together. The printer is a Samsung CLP-300. I would love to get this back...
