Did you guys notice what psu comes in that case? Its an earthwatts 380w which is a **** good psu, it has 34A on the 12v rails and its extremely efficient. And itll run that config just fine, even with overclocking. I have one in a spare system and its a wonderful psu.

biostar does not have opticle out. I have a nice yamaha 5.1 DTS reciever I'm gona use for my surround. (no hdmi on reciever)

Not for the price you want...

780a... 750a... for AM2+ (for Phenoms)

570, 590, 570, Geforce 7025, (forgot 7050) all support SLi but are only AM2

clock speed is the only difference between the two.. higher multiplyer.. if you plan to overclock higher.. grab the 4800.. if not.. the 4200 will do fine
