Looks good. Assuming you do SLI, so 750i is fine. Change the PSU to Corsair 650TX.
post #5 of 6
As Linskindom said, the PSU is the only dubious part in this build and I'd go for a Corsair 550VX. Do you really see yourself going with a dual GPU solution in the future? If so, I would stick with that motherboard but otherwise there are P35 boards that are cheaper and overclock a lot more easily. If you are, I'll link some good ones.

All in all it's looking like a good build to distract you at college (thats what its all about anyway)

umm...I was looking at the DFI LanParty DK P35...its on;y $130 at newegg...how does that mobo look?? Sounds good to me.

are the cables modular in that psu??

and also...I was wandering what some good green LED 80-mm fans are...i decided not to go with the apevia fans becasue they can'y hok up to your mobo...and with the mobo I chose i will have 5 fan headers and want to make use of all of them
