Re: Refit time for son's PC...

Well, the new stuff from Newegg showed today... and I went over and picked up a HSF for the system (a Zalman orb looking thingy). I also picked up 8 GB more RAM for my system.

So, motherboard, video card, processor, memory.. Uh... Houston, we have a problem...

The damn power supply doesn't have a 8 pin 12v connection, and has only one 6 pin video connection.

Luckily, the video card came with two adapters, so I used the one with the power supply, and then one of the adapters hooked to a molex to get power to the video. I had a 4pin 12v, so I plugged that into the motherboard.

The system is up and running, and has Windows 7 on it. I have to get a decent power supply, and a Windows 7 compatible Wifi adapter, but so far, it seems to be running good. My older son is playing Minecraft right now, with the settings on max, and loving it.

Guess we should have clarified your definition of "newer", huh? lol
