Case/PS build help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am researching to build my new system and I am somewhat fond of the look of the thermaltake tower but Im not sure if the case/PS i have picked will suit my needs or not. Perhaps someone could help critique this setup.
My primary goal is to have a top of the line Motherboard so i can upgrade to QX series if/when the prices drop. Also I only want to buy 1 video card now, and be able to SLI in the future (prefer Nvidia). I need a quad core processor for my chess applications and I intend to overclock a bit, but not severely, so I'm intending to cool with Air instead of water.
Lastly I am a sponge for any and all advice any of you may have to help improve this system without breaking the bank $$.
Thanks in advance

That PSU is just fine for what you have there, and it will easily support a second card in SLI.
