And I probably will not over clock the graphics card, maybe later on, but if I do, I wouldn't do it now. Only overclocking the cpu and rams.
If you really want more PATA slots, why not use this board?

Trust me, Gigabyte makes better motherboards than EVGA. EVGA is relatively young to the motherboard scene, whereas Gigabyte has been around for a long time making enthusiast boards.

The Gigabyte has solid capacitors, better BIOS options, two PATA ports (up to 4 IDE devices) and it's actually an over-clocking beast for Core 2 Duo's.

May do that board, not sure.

Still debating till I got the money and start doing irrational things. =P

Would 620 be good enough? How high would anyone recommend for a power supply, I know it depends on what do you do with the board, but how much power would be the best for the furthest expansion a board can do?

You do realize that the OCZ GamerXStream is a FSP Forton PSU? His PSU is fine. While it maybe not the best, it is absolutely fine for his current system.

Amperes and Wattage are directly related. Yes, individual current ratings do provide more information than overall power though.

Except nVidia designed the board... not EVGA.

Certain people on this board are getting pretty atrocious at presumptions and putting words in people's mouths.

QUOTE the part of my post where I said EVGA "designed" the 680i. I know who designed the 680i, but the quote you had of me, CLEARLY I said EVGA "made" that 680i. Is that not true? Does EVGA drive down to the Nvidia chocolate factory and pick up the 680i's that Nvidia makes and puts the EVGA label on? NO. Nvidia sells the chipsets and design rights to EVGA, EVGA makes the board, packages it, boxes it and ships it out.

Why do you think ASUS 680i boards have solid capacitors and EVGA boards don't? Oh yeah that's right, because ASUS and EVGA are different motherboard brands.

And voltages x amps = watts, but that doesn't change the fact that better power supplies use better internal components, better caps, better heatsinks, a better 12v rail specification or the fact that some power supply companies lie about what the max watts is on their PSU's.

How else would you explain that the FSP 760 gets the exact same 12v rail amperage as the 700?

Plus efficiency also plays a huge role. The GameXStream 700 doesn't have the efficiency the Corsair S12 based unit has when the 12v rails are under near full load. I know that it takes a lot to fully load 12v rails (even a 8800 SLI set up at load can only really put down 500ish watts) but it doesn't change the fact that when you put these PSU's at load, the Corsair has 80% efficiency and the GameXStream doesn't.

So that's how it is. I need to look up some FAQ's on PSU then. =P

Like you said EVGA is "new". But you have to really see the long run to know how good they can be. By the time, hoping to get the money, I hope they'd be better. I don't know, but for some reason, I have this tingly feeling that EVGA would be a good brand for motherboards as well.
