All looks alright, but the RAM image was confusing, could you tell me what type ( PC 3200, PC 2700, DDR, DDR2, ect ) I would really consider a diffirent power supply from an online store like Newegg or TigerDirect, as that power supply is from Ebay which could be good or bad, and it doesn't look or say what brand it's made by. It only has 24Amp's on the 12V rail, and the X1900 XT needs 30 amps on the 12V rail, don't be fooled by "High watt output" as most of the watts on tht power supply is on the 5V line, where it's not needed for the video card.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Definatly look on newegg for better pricing and more selection. Also like they were saying buy a good power supply...if you have the money get one that is 80% efficient also. Also like they were saying Amps on the 12v rail are really important most newer graphics cards require at least 26a so that power supply with 24a either would work or would have to be upgraded soon.

The graphics card is older and only 256mb which is a low amount of memory. If you plan on running 22" or so i would be looking at 512mb.

Try building a system off newegg.com and post it up i think you will be happier with it.

Wasn't caused by the board's software, it was caused by a SPAMMER, who posted to this topic Oct 29 2008, 12:21 PM.
The individual has since been Banned.
