I just put together a development system based on some discussions here. It has
- Antec P182 case
- Asus M2N-SLI Motherboard
- 8800GTX video card
- Seasonic SS-700HM power supply
- Scythe SCNJ-1100P HSF
- 2 seagate SATA drives
I'm very happy with how quiet the system is. Some components came from an old system, so that is why they were chosen.
However, I have to use a special PCI-based image processing card and that card is 12.5" long. It doesn't fit in the case, so I need to get something else.
I have looked at the P190. Initially, it seemed ideal. However, I am not wild about the dual-PS setup and don't feel like paying for them. I would like to continue using the Seasonic. Any problems with that? Also, I am worried that the Scythe HSF won't fit because of the P190's side fan. Does anyone have thoughts on that?
Can anyone suggest an alternative that is quiet, yet large enough to support the PCI card I need to use and the huge Scythe HSF?
