    Sell the motherboard on and go SandyBridge?

    If not, your parts look fine although personally i would get a Seasonic/Be Quiet PSU for the price of your Coolermaster PSU.

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I don't want to go SB.

    How is the quality on the Be Quiet PSU's?

    I have managed to get everything on Today only so far

    Way higher than a coolermaster. Coolermaster are pretty dire for PSUs.

    You won't get modular in that price bracket, not form a decent brand anyway.

    This unit is built around a Seasonic AFAIK.

    If you don't spending the extra then i don't see/know of anything wrong with that.

    Avoid XFX, due to the stupid returns policy they have with scan.

    Get another brand. (Scan tech's word & mine)

    Pretty sure you have to go through scan, when i RMA'd a card that was in my mates system it went :

    Take to scan, scan witness fault.

    Send to XFX

    XFX 2 weeks later return card to scan, no fault found.

    Scan engineers AGAIN witness the fault.

    Goes back to XFX. Comes back no fault found.

    Scan have had enough with this and just swap the card out for a gigabyte for me.

    All in all..scan are excellent, i use them as i live locally and speak to the guys quite often. Im constantly building PC's (Its my business) and will never use an XFX card again.

    Re: Order time tomorrow, your views

    Just a quick word of warning about the antec psu, it's semi-modular, it still has modular but about 5 cables hard wired in.
    still a good psu for the cost.

    ps xfx lifetime warranty only counts in the US, for the rest of the world it's just a standard 1or2 years (depending on product)

    Its the cheapest decent modular psu i could find, I am going to look on today only when it updates...

    XFX Is out the window the Asus performs a bit better and better support and its not much more money
