Yeah, NCIX had a vertex 3 120gb on sale for 200 dollars and I was real close to buying it, I really wish I had now, Ill probably just watch for one to go on sale again and snatch it up, then will think about getting psu/waterloop later down the road

I ran my sig rig 24/7 with full gpu load (but with 2x6970s as opposed to 3x6970s) with my antec TP new 650W with absolutely no problem whatsoever.

A quality 750w unit will even run two overclocked GTX 580s without a problem, and the 6950s/6970s consume less power. The most noticeable upgrade would be the SSD, so you should get that first. You seem to already have a decent power supply and CPU cooling.

The RASA kit is a good one for performance except one little item ... the pump. The pump is really the heart of the WCing loop. There have been many reports of the RASA kit pumps dying. Sure, the pump is honored under warranty, but what about down the road with it totally fails then?

I really like the WCing block with the RASA kit.
