    I think it's about time I dumped the P4 and got something with a decent amount of speed.

    New system specs:

    Intel Xeon x3220
    Crucial 2x1GB 4-4-4-12 pc6400
    Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P
    Xigmatek s1283 w/ bracket
    3x Samsung F1 HD322HJ
    Antec 900
    Radeon 4850?

    the only thing I can't decide on is a PSU. Looking for something modular if possible, but can't decide on what to get.

    Like i said go with the Corsair, i swear Corsair underrates their psu's because im running everything in my system specs off of a 750watt Corsair with no issues at all.

    Corsair, Corsair, CORSAIR!!! haha. The HX520 will run the better part of anything, and the HX620 will be a sound investment for the future too.

    I have first hand experience with corsair and I know they make great psu's, but I can't find any good deals on it. Right now they're $70 after rebate or so, but I already sent in a rebate for the current promotion, so I don't qualify for another one :[

    Except for the quad maybe that stuff will run with a quality 500-600watt supply as well :cool:

    i have used a PSU calc and this little 520W (pfft, im guessing its underrated and actually kicking out 600+) will be able to run everything in my specs, plus my quad clocked @ 3.8.

    Not bad eh? ;)
