Okay, the Motherboard. Are you talking about this one?

Because there'a few different ones by that name. That one actually looks pretty good. A little pricy, but I can live with that.

Do you have that? If you do can you clear something up. It says it has a Serial and LPT Port. Does it? The pictures don't show it. I was wondering if there's some expansion card that comes with it or if the discription just lies. I guess it doesnt' really matter though. I can always hook my printer to my server.

The OCZ RAM... Which one is the best of these two?

I assume the second is, since it boasts the title "Premiere" but I don't know. They're basically the same price too.


What wattage power supply would I need for this configuration:

DFI LanParty UT Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ X2
2 Radeon x700 PCI Express
2 HDDs
2 CDROMS (1 DVD, 1 CDRW)
2x512meg OCZ RAM

The 2xX700's will come in the future. Or, whichever card I go for. I'll go for one right now, and whenever I can save up another 120$ or so, I'll go for a second, maybe.

But, that's the "IF" situation. Just incase I go for that eventually, what would I need in terms of Power? I intend on getting a new case at some point, but it'd not going to need any power for LEDs or anything like that. I don't like those. Just what I said above, and a few extra fans.

For now, I'll stick with the Stock cooling, since the reviews I've seen of the X2 3800+ mostly all say that the CPU runs in the low to mid 30's anyway. And, I live in the basement anyway, so it'll run cooler anyway. Like my PIV 1.8GHz ran at 48-50C upstairs, and now that I'm downstairs, it Rarely gets over 35C on Maximum Stress, and idles around 28C.
