    Stabily? Where?

    And if you go to forward 2 more pages you will again see a system used with a 350w PSU in a system that is a bit more powerfull then I picked out. And they continue to reccomend 350w PSu's until you get to the page where they reccomend a FX-55 system with a 480w Antec PSU.

    You still think that PSU would not be sufficient?
    Yes. See my earlier post where I claim that article is bull****.

    Go read the PSU guide you posted and you'll see that following it's advice will cause you to want far greater than a 350W PSU, regardless of quality. I will agree that a PSU that is more efficient and runs closest to it stated specs is better than a crappy one of greater wattage, but a socket 939 system with a GeForce 6800 is likely to draw over 300W which will pretty much make anything even close to that insufficient. Unless that 350W has 100% efficiency, which isn't doesn't, it won't do. Even then it might not be enough..

    Ignore KoolDrew's statements about the PSU and go with the 480w. It IS widely known that the S939 systems need more than 350w, and you would be disappointed when the 350w fried your system within months due to running too hard.

    EDIT: Also, get a generic case and the Thermaletake 480w PSU, you want quality, not crap.

    Aside from that case + PSU, looks good. Like AMD said, don't get a 350W or some crappy case PSU. I'm not aware of any case + PSU bundles that are sufficient to run a socket 939 system, even the higher-end Antecs and Thermaltakes as they don't have anything over 450W (that I've seen, anyway). For a generic case (here it comes :) ), a Raidmax ten-bay case would be great. I got mine a week or so ago, and it's amazing for it's price. They've also started shipping them with two back 80mm fan slots instead of the 60mm one shown in the Newegg picture, which I was pleasantly suprised to see when I opened it up.
