What are the specs on that video card? I googled it and got nothing back that made sense to me.
Here you go Tacocaster http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814121534 about the only thing it doesn't have is the 16 pixelpipe lines. The version that did is nearly $600 way out of my budget. It should do everything I need it to do along with playing games....

Looks good to me, but from the newegg pictures, it looks like it as an Analog input and an DV input, yet the specs say it has two DV inputs. Well technically they are outputs, but you know what I mean.

Also, maybe check into the deluxe version of that motherboard. Better ratings on Newegg.

One more thing, I'm looking at that same PSU, have you heard anything about it?

I wish I could find out more about it as well. I have several posts on it in other forums but no real answers as of yet. The PSU I'm using now in the 520W Vantc Stealth and many have said that I would have been in good shape with a 480W PSU. I do like it but it's not real quiet at times and I did notice a slight upward trend in power usage at home and it's the only thing relativly new that I've been using for several months now.

I am in the same shape as you. I haven't heard anything about it. It's looking like I will be going with this Sparkle PSU for my new rig. It was recommended too me and the reviews on it from Newegg don't look too shabby.
