Is Jaffa an orange soda in Australia too? It is in Finland, but it's made by a Finnish company, so I guess I'm curious what inspired the name.

The PSU is cheap and so I have room to expand if I decide to go tri-fire

Why go Reference MSi 7970s instead of the MSi 7970 Power Editions (Lightning Equivalent)?
