the PS I'll be using in this system is an existing PC POwer & Cooling
500W unit, which should be up to the task. (It has been running the
existing system for something like 3-4 years, with a Phenom-II X2 and

               But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: 
                         While we were still sinners, 
                              Christ died for us.
