Asus drivers aren't as twitchy as Creative's but they're not great either. However, there are 3rd party drivers out there for the Xonar cards.

I'm not sure the old Audigy cards will work on a...

Another excellent unit. CWT have stepped their game up with the HXi for Corsair. Pity it's more expensive than the EVGA units.

Just make sure your case has lots of fan intake. The air will make its way out through the PSU.

Or strap a nice chunky fan on top :p

Seasonic units are fine. 620w is plenty for a system that probably isn't that much over 450w in reality. The S12 and M12 are older designs, but perfectly servicable and well built. PSU calculators...

Looks a lot like a SOT23 type transistor. You'd have to remove it from the board and find some device to test it with to work out a suitable replacement. You'd be wise to check the rest of the...

Given those things have had their design stable for ages, they probably farmed a number of those out already.

Very impressed by superflower, pretty sure my next unit will be SF based.

Well, if it really is a delta, it's a bargain. Quite likely they're excess stock from a big PC OEM like HP, Dell etc. Snap up a few more if you foresee yourself needing them.

Best to retain the fuse (or replace with one of the same rating) for safety. Those cells hold a lot of power, and fuses are there for your safety.
