yeah i saw that psu and i liked it too, but the thermaltake one got 230 reviews and it still has 5 eggs so it got awesome reviews. The fsp one only got 16 reviews. I dont know i like both psu's but one is more highly rated.

Nice build overall though....
thanx ethereal. I am going to buy all these parts in the summer and not now, but i do see what you are saying. That 700 dollars now will get me this while 700 dollars in the summer will get me better parts. Yeah this is just the basis of the rig. In the summer if a cpu or a mobo goes down in price then i will buy it instead of the other part. Thanx for the reccomendation i am going to do that. Thats why right now i am only buying the case and psu and maybe ram. These are the things that probaly wont alter in price from now til the summer. Although i dont want the ram to increase in price so i will buy it now. Look at sd ram, it is really expensive nwo just for like a 256 stick. I dont want the same thing to happen to ddr ram so i want to buy it now.

The FSP Force one is much better, it will be much more stable and has better ampage.
Definately get that motherboard - for the price it's the best there is. I have one and have had no problems at all.
I'd say definately DO get the 6800GS, the G80 series I think will be out of your budget, and the 6800GS is a very good card, much better than the 6600GT. But you still have time, so if the G80 series decides to do a lower end card for cheaper, then you may want to look into it.
