First how much is this machine costing? Second I always prefer a more powerful single video card versus lesser powered vid cards in sli. 2 gts 250's are around $300 while you could get a single gtx 285 for around $350 or a gtx 280 for about $300.

Any desire to build your own? for $1600 you could put together a sweet i7 system that would own that one. If not reconfigure your viedo cards to a single gtx 280 or 285. See if you could save a bit of cash by switching the q9650 to a q9550 The $50 more for the q9650 is not worth it.

QFT. And not to get too picky, I know power supply efficiency isn't up there on the list of what matters to too many people who are building high performance rigs, but I'm pretty sure a 680W is minimum for two of those bad boys, so I'd say go for a lower to mid high quality 700W PSU with good amperage.
