HX1000w corsair psu
Kingston ssd now 128GB OS drive, OCZ ONYX 32GB game drive, saegate 1.5TB 6Gb/s
Storm trooper case
and all my water cooling equipment:thumb:

people have said that i am bottle necking my cards by running them on my
EVGA 780 i chipset, and my Q6600. so lets let them puppys fly:D

With all 6 Gbs drives i need the sata III, all the boards have that,

how much are you planning on overclocking? if that is important to you, you will not find a more stable, fully featured board than this. it is on par OC wise with the m5e which costs almost double. i highly recommend this board if you are serious about overclocking:

The best board for sub $200 is the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4, nothing else can really compete with the quality of the components used.
