Corsair 520hx

also which 8800gts is that? because if you say 320mb or the 640mb I HIGHLY recommend you get the g92 512mb or 1gb

Looks good but why the sli board? Plan on it in the future? I would talk to some members here about that board before purchasing.

yeah i plan on gettin abother 8800gts card in the future or possibly even doin 3 way sli who knows. i wanna be able to run most games on very high settings cause im crazy about resolution and from my research i found that sli is a very good way to get the most out of your games. ive read alot of reviews on that motherboard and it seems fairly good. does anyone have any experience with this board?

ask veedubfreak. Two GTS's should handle everything you throw at it. Three is just over the top. Plus you say this now and newer cards will be out that are better.
