Not sure why WOT should be showing Novatech as a bad site anyone else getting the the orange glow from WOT.
It will not open for me in Firefox so will give I/E a go and see if it is any different.

Nope it will not open for me in I/E either having problems with getting redirected with PCA.
Firefox cannot find the server at click here-- is what I am getting.
As Emisoft has already banned that site as a security risk that is why no doubt that it will not open.
Why it would redirect me to that site and not Novatech's own site I have no idea.
Google for Novatech and get connected no bother.

To future proof I would go for 8Gbram and 64bit OS
if you are going to be running a lot of peripherals I would have a more powerful power unit, running 1100w myself.
