Default Will These Parts Work?

Hi, im brand new to forums because i haven't needed a tech forum until now lol.
Well i've never built a computer before and decided it be the best thing for me and this is everything i picked, sorry if it is too much info it basically copy & paste my cart from newegg (best place to shop right?) lol

Mainly i am here to ask if these parts will work, as far as i can tell the cpu & mobo work (both 1366) Also idk anything about choosing towers so idk if theres anything to worry about except having room/air flow. Also i want to use two video cards and idk nothing about that. lol

So any corrections/replacement reccomendations are very much so welcomed.

You have all these super expensive parts listed except for the video and then you go Ultra Cheap???

You don't need a 1000 watt power Supply at $165. Get this Corsair 750 watt for $90 after a $20 rebate. It has plently of power for (2) video cards, which you won't need. Savings=$75
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

Corsair Dominators=$210 after a rebate, there a waste of money. These OCZ Golds run at the same speeds and there $158 after a rebate. Savings=$52
Newegg.com - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK

The i7 930 is $295. The i7 920 is a better overclocker most of the time and it's only $280. Savings=$15
Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor

75+52+15=$142
The (2) 9500GT's are $100 add the $142 to that figure and we have $242. You can get a ATI 4890 for $210.
Newegg.com - XFX HD-489X-ZSFC Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

or a GTX 275 for $250

Newegg.com - BFG Tech BFGEGTX275896OCE GeForce GTX 275 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Default Re: Will These Parts Work?

I know xD its like $70 video card but i figured two of em would make of for its short comings lol
thats funny cause i was actually 1000watt wouldnt be enough, but i've seen custom with less wattage doing way more so i just figured better safe then sorry. As for the graphics cards is getting the one good card truely better then two cards? What if i bumped up those cheap cards? Or is there no combination of two video cards that can emulate or best (at a cheaper price) a single card?

Thanks for ur corrections all is going into the build right away except for the cards ( i know i need better ones) until i get a reply or do a little more research.

Also any comment on the tower/parts working with each other?

One good card is always better than 2 weak cards.

yea, don't bother with those weak cards.

your money would be much better spent on either of the cards Slay linked. if you have no brand preference, get the 4890 since it's cheaper and performs similarly to the more expensive nvidia gtx 275.

or this card
Newegg.com - XFX HD-577X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
it is less expensive than either of those cards, but it is also less powerful. still a great card for the price and would still be better than 2 9500gt's, you won't regret not getting them.
