Alright thanks.
So with the i7 and the 4890, about how many watts should my PSU be? 550?

Meh, on the original post, everything looks good except the PSU. Make sure it has 2 6 pins connectors for your video card, and you may want to look into a 650W Corsair, about 40 bucks more.

I think I am going to go with an i7 build now, so I should update the original post.
Anyone know a really really nice sub-$1000 i7 build?
