Well I'm a firm believer of the XP-120, but I've heard really good things about the thermaltake, you can always buy both and whichever had the lowest performance you can use on ur current pc, the Big Typhoon isn't that much, so you won't be loosing but 30-40 bucks if you did. Just an Idea.

But as of now, I suggest the XP-120. I'm getting the same fan you are getting and putting it on my XP-120.

Looks like I showed up a bit late to this party

BUT I am going to defend the OCZ PowerStream since I have now put the 600W model into 4 different systems and am buying 2 more next March. Not a single one has failed and they were all absolutely stellar PSUs albeit a bit expensive.

Also DFI SLi-DR over the ASUS, no contest. The DFI Expert is THE BEST S939 motherboard you can buy in every category.

One last thing, the XFI is actually designed to be BETTER for headphones than other sound cards and some say it is better with hedphones than actual speakers! I have never tested this but this is what the reviews say.
