With everything pretty much in place, we now can install the power supply. We choose a Linkworld LPG2-43-P4-IO ATX12V 630W Power Supply.

We now connected all the cables (SATA, IDE, power, etc.).

We then installed our ATI SAPPHIRE 100195L Radeon X1650 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card. This card was picked as a budget card. At only $52.99 we felt it would be a good baseline card to use before we can get our hands on a good DirectX 10 card to use the Vista Aero interface.

Once everything was connected, we closed up the case and mounted the external CPU cooler speed control to the side of the case routing the cable out the back through a bus port.

We're done!

Notice we had to move our second optical drive down one bay to accommodate a shorter IDE ribbon cable.

There'll be a whole lot more than "Intel Inside" that will be contributing to this workstation's performance!

The Cooler Master case has a couple USB ports and an IEEE 1384 port which we cannot use because this motherboard does not have a hookup for it.
