    That's cheap! I'm about to reccomend that to one of my friends for a gaming rig. We were origionally looking at a GT240 for $60, and then the sale on that went away...

    Damn, just remembered... I can't reccomend a video card with a PCI-E power connector. He's got some HP computer and the stock PSU probably doesn't have PCI-E, and the specs on retail systems never list what kind of power supply it has... but judging by experiance, it probably doesn't have PCI-E power connectors, so I don't want to chance reccomending a video card that needs one...

    damn Tim, I usually am able to spare some cash but after $700 on my car I really don't have anything bro. I no longer have any barbs or anything water cooling related. :( Sorry bro, but this time I really can't help.

    I just thought I had two 1/2" barbs with my card, but they are not the same thread :( I forgot also that garyinhere was sending me a HDD on Monday, so don't worry about the HDD for now :toast:

    BTW, I still have to send out the optical drive to Gary, been super busy buddy, so if you see this, don't beat me up about it :(

    CP could you update the list please. I decided to go a different way(cheaper way) with the new rig.I found the problem with the gigabyte board it was a cap that was bulging so i am going to replace it and use that board.
    So i need: 8800GT/9800GT,95w Quad or Tri (phenom II/Athlon II based),DDR2 ram.

    well im waiting to hear news from erocker on his water pump if i cant afford it and depending on CP's and Fulls permission ill probably sell my entire stock of water cooling stuff.

    2 120 single rads 1 swiftech res's 2 enermax magma fans with 2 home made fan shrouds pre cut tubing that will easily fit the kit in a case the size of a haf 932 so it should be drop in almost for any other case. everything uses compression fittings got about 8-10 of them id be selling all as 1 big pile so to speak but ill keep you informed CP after all i spent on water it dosent seem worth it at all so again if i cant afford a new pump (the Thermaltake pump i have works just it wants to be a complete bitch and will only push if i take the rad out of the system for some odd reason) eitherway im rambling ill keep you posted

    well like i said fulls pump works just its being a bitch i guess from what ive read all TT pumps from the P500 range have the same issues.. And if i cant even get it to pump through a rad i dont trust it in my rig 24/7 while im not around either.

    so like i said im just waiting to hear from erocker on his pump its a 355 so i know it will do the job. Just need to see on cost. lol even with your block and fittings fulls res rads and pump ive still dropped $150 so far on screws tubing fittings proper fans etc. once i tallied it up i had one of those FUCK! moment as i realized that is enough for an SSD :roll: eitherway we shall see.

    I already scalped my Shinedown tickets to make back a few $$ was suppose to see them on saturday instead i have to go work to make up for today where i tried trouble shooting instead. lol altho i did learn one thing. I need to get rich so i can just hire you to do my water cooling or anyone on TPU for that matter :toast:
