1,000 Watts is only overkill if you are a sissy... you aren't a sissy, are you?

thanks again, I was worried about the ram also, they say there are to versions(1 good and 1 bad) and you can't tell until you buy them.

I will check out crucial. Also I was hopeing to avoid 64bit becuase not many programs support it. Is this true now adays? Power supply is what I heard recomended.

I have a 1010watt PSU.... It was free... I think it's foolish to spand $300 on a PSU that is overkill, you could save at least half of that and still have a nice PSU.

That'd bem true for the Windows operating systems, any 32-bit software will run in a kind of translated-instruction state, but with today's processors that doesnt slow it down much.

if you wanna play with 64 bit computing, install Windows 32 for your games and hit up some linux for 64-bit.

but thats the unix whore in me talking

I have no complaints on XP x64, compatibility and stability is better than I hoped.

Ill try 64bit, things are looking better for it. I just remeber reading that some programs will not work at all. Ill check if I use any but I don't think I do.

yeah no complaints on vista ultimate 64 bit either. haven't run into one program compatibility issue that wasn't fixable. overall it is a very smooth os, and its what all os will be in the future anyways so why not get a head start also you can expand up to over 100GB of ram if and when the time came hah

and yeah I definitely agree on the psu being way overkill. I just bought my silencer 750 and it is AWESOME. it was the psu that was used to demonstrate 3 8800 ultras in tri sli....i think that pretty much says it...haha. and plus its the amps that matter, not the watts, and my silencer has a 60 amp 12v rail......and yes that is a lot

For water cooling, do what I did:
Order this and ask them for the Vario pump with the 320 rad.

Then these:
1x http://www.petrastechshop.com/pepcobi1.html
4x http://www.petrastechshop.com/dhifig1th1od.html

Total is around $280

yeah, now that you think of it it is kinda high, I read somewhere that you should use that much for SLI but i can't remember where. I might do the upgrade to the 2 gts instead now they went down in price. The only thing is that the gt's in sli perform better than 2 gtx in lower res and the gts fell behind. Is this true in reality or would the gts be the better choice?

thanks for the watter cooling link

The GTS's are faster than GT's because they have more Stream Processors so they're faster than GT's at all resolutions.
