    So after my pc crapped out on me. I'm deciding to upgrade and build a new one. Here's what I have in my shopping cart. What do you guys think? Will I need to be worried about any heating issues? Should I have any problems watching movies and playing games in 1080p?

    EVGA GTX260 Core 216 SSC
    LG DVD Writer
    StarTech PCIe IDE Controller
    OCZ Gold Tri-Channel 6GB PC16000 DDR3 2000 MHZ
    EVGA X58 SLI LE Motherboard
    Ultra LSP750 750-watt PSU
    Cooler Master Elite 330 Mid-Tower
    Intel i7 920 CPU

    well, if your not sure if it can play 1080, i doubt you plan on overclocking it, so cooling shouldn't be a prob

    wouldn't be bad idea to just get an adaptor and run the old IDE drives as a USB drive.

    Hard drive speed is the one thing that's still very limited speed/transfer rate wise in PCs, and IDEs are down there at the bottom. Getting a SATA drive as a new primary drive wouldn't be a bad idea.
