Hey all, you might have seen my topic earlier on getting a proc, mobo and fx card for 500$ or less =). I have purchased them from zipzoomfly (free 2nd day air, I need my computer back now!!).

Now I have been building systems for quite a while, but I have been having bad luck lateley.....call it exaustion from too much work, or just plain bad karma, but computers have not been going right for me latley . Anyways, What is there, that I need to know about getting a system up and running on an athlon 64/PCI express. I already have all my other components, here they are

Antec NEO power 480w (I think on the watts)
Xaser III 1000a
1 Gigabyte of Corsair value select ram pc3200
Soundblaster NX
74Gb Western Digital Raptor SATA drive
40gb western digital IDE drive (for storage and stuff)

here is what I ordered

http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=241792

http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?ProductCode=80699-2

So I guess in the long run, are there any nuances of athlon 64 procs I should be aware of, and are there any for PCI express as well?

Also, with the 6600gt, is that something I will need to disable fast writes, or manually modify its voltage on?

No problems with A64/PCI-E as far as I've heard.

For the videocard, just leave everything at stock. If there are problems, disable fast writes as it practically has no effect on frames.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck. Hopefully, you'll have better luck with this one.
