Default More Building Questions

The OCZ modstream seems like a very good power supply and I've been told so from many people here. I noticed it's not SLI certified, and I'm not going dual SLI but will it still support a 7 Series card and all that stuff. Also, I know about computers, and programming and hardware, but I know jack **** about BIOS, which whe I configure my computer I'll need to know, can anyone help me here?

The Mod Stream will be fine for a single card. It will either come with a PCIE 6 pin power connector, an adapter or your GPU will have an adapter, otherwise ebay.

All you need to do in the BIOS is set the CD drive as first boot to install XP and then put the hdd as first boot after.

Its fine if its not SLI certified, they have to pay nVidia tons of $$$ to get the symbol.
