op: youll be happy with what you got.
Well, the rest is his choice (although, I do think the ODD could be sharper looking).

But the PSU is a MAJOR WASTE.

You don't understand - it's not overkill; it's underkill for a horrible price.

The Silverstone 1000w is a SINGLE-RAIL PSU that costs 80$ less.

Will that mobo even support sli/crossfire? I don't see it specifically saying anywhere.

OP build looks good UD7 has PCIe x16 x2. Do ya think you really need 3 video cards? If you've got the $ go for it. Should be able to nuke any game for the next few years.

All the information you want is in my sig.

I think that because I have 10TB and it's almost all full.

I chose the Corsair PSU simply because of multiple recommendations and it had a good amount of positive reviews. I was actually not cognizant of the single/multi rail factor of PSUs.

Would this be a better option?

Also, a lot of people have been telling me that a 3rd HD6950 would not add much performance and could even reduce performance. They're suggestions I stick with either one or two high end cards... Thoughts?

"You definitely should go with a single high end gpu over the three 6950's. Crossfire and sli both have a very bad price to performance ratio. twice (or in your case three) times the cost for maybe a 25% increase in speed and not the widely assumed 100% increase.

In your case with 3 gpu's the 3rd gpu will add little to no performance increase over two , and in some tests actually is slower then two. This is because all three gpu's are basically fighting for something to render thus slowing the machine over two or even one gpu."

Oh, your intelligent questions remind me of how much I loved giving advice.

In regards to the PSU, yes, that is the proper one. But there is a 150$ version on Newegg that is virtually identical. A nice way to save 35$.

And in regards to the GPUs - it is true - if a game does not support Triple-CF, the Dual-GTX 580 system will win. And I do NOT have the information to back up my numbers, because I did not end up with the HD 6950 system.

But in all my experience, the reason why people always preferred the single/dual card setup opposing the triple/quad was because of vRAM. Like you could get a single 1.5GB GTX 580 for the price of two 768MB GTX 460.
But in this case, the HD 6950s have MORE vRAM than the GTX 580.

All I can tell you is that WORSE performance, is extremely unlikely.
If it were me, I would choose HD 6950 Triple-CF over GTX 580 SLi.
Or you could buy two GTX 580s and save for the third one.
I can tell you that I am not dissatisfied.

That silverstone is good and yes your right it is a better deal for the price. All I was saying is there is nothing wrong with the 1k watt corsairs....If thats what he wanted that was fine.

op: As for the multi gpu setup you are correct that after a while adding more cards yields very little. What is your goal with this pc? If its to max crysis then ok you need more power but if its just to be able to play almost any game max then you dont need so much gpu

Why is it fine? It's not fine.

It's inferior and costs 80$ more.
