    Ugh, and Ultra Power supply, not for me thanks. I'm sure most are alright but I've heard of a few Ultra models that have had serious design flaws in the first few batches. How can a Power supply have a serious design flaw? It's not hard!

    The unit I posted earlier is Hiper, but more in keeping with the budget system he's building.

    Money sort of is a factor to me sense Im saving for a new car. But im willing to spend a few grand on the computer. I can easily sell the one I have now for quite a bit. That motherboard i have they dont make anymore. I could easily sell it for 200+ sense it sold before for 350+. But I might keep it as a server computer which is what the motherboard is designed for.

    but for him, it's a budget build so inexpensive parts that are actually any good are important!
