For the same price as that Enermax you get could buy the same PSU I did for my 7950gx2 system, a cooler master 500w. Its quiet, has the SLi connectors, and even comes pre-sleeved. I highly recommend it.

what are the red and two blue connectors that look like mini pata connectors on the bottom of that mobo?

one's for USB card, and one's for firewire... not sure about the third one though.

It doesn't suck (review), but there are better choices out there. I suggest the Enermax Liberty 500W or the Antec NeoHE 500W you've linked to.

The TT case fan, it'll be really loud if it has to spin up. I suggest a fixed-speed fan, like this Scythe S-Flex.

There's an X1900XT 256MB that was just announced may save you some money.

shittacular review on that psu. get one you trust for expensive parts like that

This is what I bought:

http://www.idude.us/Newegg%20computer%20bought.html

I could of saved $30 more if I had realized that the BenQ monitor had a combo deal with the video card of $70 vs my combo with the processor for $40

I'm trying to see if they can switch my combos

wtf, shittacular? It's a real review where the thing goes onto a dedicated PSU load tester, with varying dynamic loads from 0 to 100%. You see the voltage drops as the loads increase. Jonnyguru also puts the PSU under awkward loads (more on the legacy +5V and less on the +12V) and sees how it holds up. Most "review" sites just put a static load (usually a computer) onto it, and the reviewer tests it using a multimeter. That's not proper testing. Jonnyguru's reviews are regarded as being one of the best out there.

I'm not saying that one shouldn't spend on their PSU, but to blindly write off a perfectly good choice (albeit an expensive one in this case), doesn't make a lot of sense. The NeoHE in it's latest revision is known to work perfectly with Asus motherboards. And just so you know, the Antec NeoHE is designed and built by Seasonic.

OP, you got ripped off on that BenQ FP202W. It's a shitty 6-bit TN panel, the Sceptre is a lot nicer overall (colour depth, detail, contrast, viewing angles, etc).

I know that the HE is made by seasonic, the latest version is a great psu. The problem with the HE is that there are a lot of the ~older~ revision still out there. Out of 3 we went thruogh recently (as in, 2 weeks ago), we STILL hit one older version. It worked, so we didn't have to deal with returning it (and they were intel boards anyway, but still).

I agree that most other reveiws are craptacular, sorry, didn't read this one well enough too tired. It looked at first glance like he was getting the numbers from software, not from an actual load tester.

And i'd avoid sceptre at all costs... we used 25 of them at NCAR for mounted displays, and had to 'try' to RMA 17 of them within a year.

lol, that kinda sucks. The Sceptre that the OP was considering, it's the same panel inside as the popular Viewsonic VX2025WM. The outside housing and other electronics are (I'm assuming) made by Sceptre. The panel itself is fantastic, not sure about the rest of it.

Well, we had issues with the electronics, not the panels (exception being one that got dead pixels everywhere). the power systems died, connectors died, etc.
