Hey jrm i ordered most of my parts for pc just need 2 more things but i got a problem on my old computer not the one im on now im on my brothers but my computer isnt starting up it says Boot Failure:System Halted and i restart and restart and restart and everytime its the same thing it says Boot Failure:System Halted, this thing has happened before but very rarely and it was weird because after like 1 - 3 times of restarting it finally starts. Whats wrong with it and how do i fix it.

Thanks
~Peter

Get a evga or xfx 7800gt if you have the money. They already come overclocked.

Hey guys i have another monitor from my older pc its pretty good actually would it be smart to have 2 monitors on my new pc, its more a curiosity and coolness thing then anything else, and how exactly does it work like can i have on 1 screen a game and on the other like winamp to play music instead of having to minize the screen?

oh and btw check out my last post.

THanks

Shure if you want that one then get it. It will work with your mobo.
