I think you're going to want a different powersupply. Something like this would be a lot better for what you're powering.

Crucial Ballistix PC6400
Corsair HX520 (PSU)
I'd recommend those.
Didn't see the two GTX's. The PSU recommended above would be a better fit.

I just saw your 17 inch monitor. SLI GTX's would be a waste for running at such a small resolution.

I will be upgrading the powersupply I guess, the crappy thing is I found this forum after I ordered the pc


well the kicker is I am in Iraq so a big moniter does me no good right now. when i get back stateside I will upgrade to two 20inchers or so


please give me every bit of advice. as I will be upgrading as much as possible

I'm running a 26" Vizio LCD HDTV via DVI to HDMI connection on my current system, and plan to continue using it for my custom build that i'm in the process of (Still ordering parts). lol So what games do you play that your getting 2 GTX's for?? Just curious, building a gaming rig myself. Alot of these guys know what they are talking about, many parts I've ordered and will be ordering are from advice I've gotten here. Good luck!
