Have just joined the forum & look forward to being part of it.
I currently own an old Athlon 2000Xp, 512mb Kingston Ram, GA-7VAXP mobo, leadteak MX400 64mbVGA. Has served me well as I am not a mad gamer, just like the occassional old game.
However, I have started the upgrade path & have set my targets, & will hopefully be able to get the remainder of what is needed over the next few months.
Whilst I will be doing some gaming, my focus will be towards video editing & photoshop work. As a start I have obtained the fllowing items that will form a large part of my new desk, or under desk computer.
I chose the case owing to price & that all the main controls are at the top, & as I have back issues, for me it was an ergonomic choice as welll as clutter clearance & plenty of cooling.
Antec Nine Hundred 900 Gaming Case,
Corsair 2meg kit CL4 800 DDR 2 ram (2 more to get)
Galaxy Geforce 9800GT 512 Hybrid Power
I am looking at the following parts to complete PC
Intel Core Duo 8400 or Quad 6600
2xPioneer DVD burners
2x 3.5" SATA 750GB 32MB Samsung HDD
Vista Home Premiun
I obtained the Galaxy Card at an excelllent price & has since increased in price & as it was also over $100.00 than the equivelant 8800gt at the cheapest price point of any brand.
So far I have not seen any reviews of this card, whilst all have tended to be reviewing the O/clocked versions or the Asus model just reveiwed here on Mad Shrimps.
Is there anyone out there that could give me a run down on that card?
Likewise I come to the Power Supply, I note that Antec reccomend their supplies for some unknown reason! But, in trying to look at other power supplies & read reviews, there is one bit of information lacking & that is the length of connectors.
I have read where some have been caught out by the bottom mount of the PS in the Antec case as well as other similar styled cases, I would like to see this aspect mentioned in PS reviews that could say if they are suitable or not.
As with the request on the Galaxy card, I would appreciate some advice in regard to the PS.

Yo to all you MAD Shrimps and a question for you!!
Yup, my first post so first off I'd like to say a big hello to one and all. Been lurking for awhile but here goes with my question. Where in the Antwerp region do you purchase Armaflex or Neoprene?? I finally found dielectric grease, (had to order it in, but they got it) but have struck out so far on the Armaflex or Neoprene. Cruised all the local plumbing shops but they really aren't interested. So.....please tell me where I can purchase some without having to order from overseas.
