Comes to $865.12 w/ free shipping... with $60 rebates.. its $805.12.

If you can come up with a bit more cash... get this SSD. It be one of the biggest upgrades you so puts your TOTAL to ~$800 budget

If you can use that OCZ power supply for free...than yes that is a 'decent' enough psu for free... It will run all the components I have stated with no issues.... use it for the time being until you can come up with enough cash for something new. When you are ready for another upgrade...grab a 750 watt psu and another GTX 570 and SLI them =)

I like my ocz, I have no idea why they get a bad rep from some people. They aren't top of the line enthusiast level, but they work very well, at least they always have for me. I got the one I'm using for like $50 at svc.com and it's been great for over 3 years.

If you think you EVER may crossfire or SLI your video card, make sure to get a good PSU to do so. 600 is great for that build, but probably weak for 2 video cards.
