You dont think i already am lol

The PSU isnt too great its fine for now by all means but soon i want to upgrade to a Coolmaster 800w Pro. I have now tidyed up all the cables using clear cable ties and have run the cable that was going across the CPU cooler around the side of it. I decided as i upgraded to Vista Ultimate 64bit so going to get a extra 4Gb ram to take it to 6Gb

Skint atm but getting the extra 4Gb XMS2 ram kit and a BFG Phyx 128Mb card at the end of this month and in Jan might invest in a AMD Phemon Black (Hopefully they will drop a bit more then :P)

Aftermarket cooler sounds real nice but not sure if its worth the extra £30 or so when im trying to save for either a 260/80 or a 4850X2

Edit: Can anyone link me some nice dual slot GPU coolers and i might change my mind

Edit2: I love the look of this but i dont think it will fit my card: http://www.electronicsshowplace.com/...-p-154614.html

This cooler is excellent, however I'm not sure it will fit on your card. An email to the Akasa tech guys would probably be your best bet.

Nice job on the rig build, it looks pretty sweet.
