hmmmm, in that case i'll probably drop the PSU to 800W. i think that should be sufficient

as far as PSU goes, stay at or under 1000watts, and your still futureproofing it, so whatever card you get now, you can still sli/crossfire later.
and for gpu I'm more of an nvidia guy, but apparently these new 7970's, and the 7950 thats suppose to come are great cards.
otherwise I'd pick up a gtx580

hmmm, i think i would drop to the 800W for PSU and see if i can get a good deal on the GTX 580 or the 7970s depending on my budget. haha. for the CPU im guessing the 2500k would offer me a btr option . thanks for ur help! (:

I bought the Rosewill Lighting 1000w which you could trifire on which I plan to do eventually which is great for the price of $180. So compaire the prices and see if that's good for you.

Its performance is equal to the NZXT Hale 1000w and kingwin 1000w internally (besides the fans) if you want to see some the other options. The rosewill one it the cheapest though.

for a gaming rig mate seriously all you need processor wise is a 2500k. Hyperthreading is not used in games. The rest of the rig looks pretty solid. thumb.gif
