So i originally was going to go with the GA p35 DS3L but then i discovered the 750i FTW and decided to change things up a little.

Q6600-Frys $200.18 Shipped and Taxed

Corsair Power Supply (Really Want to know What you guys think of this one)

G.Skill PK 2x1Gb DDR2 800

EVGA 750i FTW Mainboard

Tuniq Tower

EVGA 512mb 8800gt
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130318

WD Caviar 320Gig HDD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136074

Stealing DVD drive out of old computer for now

What do you guys think?? It's a little pricier than i had originally intended, but i saved on the CPU so i upped the mobo and added a PSU since mine couldn't handle it all.

Can that PSU handle two 8800gt 512mb cards? It has 60A on the 12v Single rail but i'm still not sure...

Thanks!
Maximus

"Yea, that PSU will run 2 8800 GT cards in SLI just fine, it will also provide power enough for all your components, all your peripherals, and any overclocks you plan to do."

"I might sound like a advertiser for Corsair but I recently installed one in a friends machine. He and I, and even his Mother, fell in love with it. It is not only very well constucted, but the cables are very well tied, the fan is silent but still creates excellent airflow. It comes with nice little extras like a vinyl sack (I would use it to put extra screws or whatever from the build in), and a neat Corsair sticker for the case (it is plastic and bumpy, not like a regular sticker, but more like the plush ones you probably remember from being a kid)."

"Oh yea, it powers stuff real well too."

the psu is great. but imo it is slight overkill...u could do with a 600W....i was going to recommend the PCP&C silencer 610W but its around the same price so go with what you picked.and yes it can handle two 8800GTs easily.and the case link leads to the ram.

Oops! Case link fixed! And glad to hear that PSU is up to the snuff...would this psu be better money spent??? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139005

It's got 52A on the 12v....donno if that's enough or not.

As long as it can power two 8800GT's like the one i linked in the OP and let me overclock to 3.6ghz (i hope to hit this) then i'm happy and might as well save myself 30ish dollars after MIR.
