the 700 watt is same price as 600 watt
Newegg.com - XCLIO GREATPOWER X14S4P4 700W ATX12V 700W Power Supply 100 - 240V / 200 -240V UL, CUL, TUV, CB, VDE, FIMKO, DEMKO, NEMKO, SEMKO - Retail

why do you need 2 mx-2?
oh well i guess you can keep it for your next 15 builds :0

get this motherboard for $20 less
Newegg.com - ABIT IX38 Quad GT LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

it has 2 less USB but it has eSATA ports as the maximus doesn't
and it has external cmos button

also be sure to set up either RAID 0 or 1 its worth it

The Maximus Formula has external Cmos reset also. It also has on board Power and Reset buttons. It comes with an external LCD post display which I like quite a bit and can be used as a clock once things are up and running.

plus the CMOS Reset button on the Back is a nice feature so you don't have to open up the PC when you over do it on the OC'ing
