    Not bad, but I don't think it will work without a PSU....

    He may get a PSU but he's pretty screwed without a motherboard...

    But it's a nice build nevertheless.

    I'm... not sure on the PSU, actually. I got it in a store.

    Also, my PC runs on magic. No PSU or Motherboard needed [​IMG]

    Nice monitor

    But Pentium 4? On a dual core? I don't know man, it should be Pentium D or Core2Duo. Instead of a 8600GTS, you should have settled in for an 8800GT (just saying though, an 8600GTS is pretty sweet too). Does your DVD Drive support Dual Layer DVDs? Games like Crysis are Dual Layered and you'll need one to read those. I hope you got yourself a sweet motherboard too, you don't wanna bottleneck your dual core processor and graphics card now do you?

    I wouldn't say it is "kick-ass", but its not bad. Good enough to run Crysis [​IMG]

    I typed in P4 by accident, its actually a C2D. My DVD can read Dual Layer. I wanted to get 8800GTS, but it would have bumped up the price to an unaffordable amount.

    Just because it's not the best, it doesn't make it not kick arse [​IMG]
