PSU: Corsair 520HX
OS: Windows Vista/Linux
and I'd like to move to the ESI Juli@ seeing as Creative haven't seen fit to release Vista drivers yet for the 0404.

You're prolly gonna want bigger power. I'm using 500 and it's one of the next things on the upgrade list, it's nearly tapped out. My specs are posted on page three I believe.

Seriously? I'm running pretty much the same spec as he would be (dual core instead of a quad), and it's nowhere near tapped out.

Unless you decide to run two 8800 Ultra, 5 hd-dvd burners, 10 250mm and 10 SCSI hard drives you'd need more than 600W.

Most consumers get tricked into believing that they need a lot more power than they really need.

Part of the problem is the power spike when the computer first powers on.
Then again the processors I'm using each max out at 120Watts power usage so I like having a whole bunch of wattage.

I used to design/build systems for a living, but now I'm not so cutting edge, nor do I play games.

A decent ~$100 Antec Case
A 5-600watt brand name (Antec?) power supply
Asus A8N SLI Mainboard
Athlon 64 X2 3800
2gb RAM
2- 300gb 7200rpm hard drives
The cheapest re-badged DVD drive I could find
The cheapest re-badged DVD Burner I could find
The cheapest Geforce dual DVI card I could find
ESI Juli@ Sound Card
A couple of pretty quiet fans
2 identical/ pretty cheap Acer 19inch Monitors
M audio DX4 speakers, used mainly for slingbox
Infrant ReadyNAS- 667Gigs of X raid security backed up to an external every few days.

I also have a thinkpad T30 that is aging but pretty cheap to patch back together.

agreed. Unless you are running SLI, 500 watts is enough and in most cases 430 or 450 is enough.

Nothin' special, but does the job.

Agreed on this. It's too expensive for its overall gaming performance level; it's only a sideways step at best from a two-generation-old 7800GT.
Then again, the only GPUs suitable for next-generation gaming all cost significantly more than what the 8600GTS costs. And the less expensive GPUs are even less suitable for gaming than the 8600GTS. The 8600GTS itself is stuck in between the fastest HD2600 series GPU and the slowest HD2900 series GPU, with prices to match their performance level.
