Glad you're getting that settled ChickenGod.
Mary, I'm curious why you're not willing (able?) to plug your case fans right into the mobo. That's how I've got mine set up. Does Cat know something I don't and should I dig in there and change it?

So I'm kicking off my own rebuild. It'll be part by part over the next several months. I just ordered a new case, since my current case is around 15 years old (old enough that it was before the fad of having windows in the side, and I cut one in myself with a dremel).
I think the next piece I'm going to pick up will be a power supply. Last time I bought a power supply, 500W was teh hawt ****e. I've been told that is pretty underpowered by modern gaming PC standards. I'm not trying to build a gaming PC per se, but pretty much everything is an upgrade. What is a good wattage for a power supply these days? Anything else I should know? (I'm still thrown off by power supplies being mounted on the bottom of the case now. weird).

Just received my new computer case. Its a Corsair 600T. I didn't realize it was going to be quite as large as it is, the depth is quite a bit longer than my current case is, and its considerably wider as well. I guess that "mid-tower" isn't quite the same as it used to be. I'm not displeased, just hoping it'll fit under my desk when I finish building it out. The features are a significant improvement over my 15 year old beast of a case.

YAY! Computer build is done. It's going to be a bit before my system is back to normal. Gonna install my joystick driver next (well, the Dual Shock 2 adapter) and then leave FFXI updating all night.
Man..compared to my old pc this one runs like a dream. Thanks for the help Shadowcat, even if you were cranky this evening! *hugs her brother*
