well if hes planning on going sli, he should just get the corsair 520, its got enough power to supply for his needs, its modular, and its cheaper than the 620.

In the end build something different. Who wants their rig to be the exact same as the next guy.

I would never go with SLI just because its something I would never spend my money on because I dont PC Game that much. I still want to run the games at high quality but not in SLI. Next decision is the GFX card which is the most important decision for me. Its between either radeon's 3800 series or nvidia 8800gt 256mb or 512mb version. I am not sure at this point.

If you can find a 256 8800gt, then get that. Odds are you won't though.
