As for the Power Supply, I LOVE Modular, it's easily worth the extra few bucks to make a potentially scary system much cleaner.

Gotcha. Something like this?

Also, the fact that I'm probably running this computer 24/7, isn't a SSD's lifespan a lot lower?

I want to point out that a 750W PSU is already overkill for a single GPU. Going for the 850W is just ridiculous. Go for a good PSU in the 500W range and a mid-tower case and you can save yourself enough cash for either the 2600k or the SSD. Maybe even both.

That SSD would be great, I've heard praise for the Vertex II.

And no need to worry about the lifespan of your SSD, just don't defrag it or something stupid.

EDIT: What the poster above me has said about power is absolutely true, I'd try and fine a ~600W Modular PSU. I usually stick to Corsair, Antec or Seasonic.

However, if you like the case buy the case. To each their own.

Eh, you can SLI 570s on a good 650W (as in one that's properly rated). OCZ StealthXstream 500W is good for non-modular. The Antec Earthwatts and Neo ECO models are also good and not modular. Seasonic has a very good modular 560W unit, if that matters to the OP.

I only suggest a smaller case since he could buy a mid-tower HAF that would still look similar. If it's that important to him, so be it. I would just rather get an SSD than a full tower case I don't need.

I own 2 corsair psu's so I'll probably stick with them. So you think a PSU like this:[ame="http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CMPSU-750TX-750-Watt-Certified-compatible/dp/B000X2677A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1299133030&sr=8-1"]Amazon.com: Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750-Watt TX Series 80 Plus Certified Power Supply compatible with Intel Core i7 and Core i5: Electronics[/ame]

will be able to handle my build? I'm also considering to just buy 2 SSD's. One for the OS and one to frap into since I heard that frapping videos onto another drive other than the OS in it is faster. Would that mean it's even faster going into an SSD drive? I can put all my media files into my 1tb external that I already have.

Edit: Or just 1 SSD and use my external 1tb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227551

Seasonic SS-560KM is an excellent psu. It is just very good at everything, and has plenty of power for whatever you could throw at it:

I'm pretty sure it would run a pair of 580s, if you weren't running them in furmark for hours on end.

Thanks for the suggestion, but as I've said before, i7 2600k may take too long and I need more than 4/6 gigs of ram.

I dropped the 2x1tb harddrives and just got 1 SSD. Reference my last post.

Because I got the SSD instead, I'm over $1500. Can anyone else approve of lowering the PSU from 750 watts to 650? I'm also planning to overclock.

Drop the 1366 and go 2600k + b3 revision board.
