I'm build this to replace my noisy macbook pro. I am a web developer. I will probably buy the video card and install later.
I'm curious on fan placement on the phenom case (Prodigy guts). Two quiet fans plus a cpu cooler enough? I paid a little more for the motherboard because it dosent have useless IO like vga or usb2.0. I don't plan on over clocking. The power is useless for my needs. I5 is probably a splurge.
FYI i have never built a computer or Hackintosh. I have friends who can help with assembly.
