Well i'll be getting a single ultra, so thanks for helping me choose that, now comes the fun of finding a good ultra. that one on microcenter looks pretty good but they dont ship to canada i heard good things about the xfx ultra's. Another thing is what is a good PSU to power an ultra? i will be running a q6600, probably 3-4 HD's. around 6 case fans and a CPU cooler. also what is a good cpu cooler...... :S

Eh? 850 is WAY too much. The ultra only requires 550 with 36A.

Edit my bad, it wants 500w with 35A on the 12V. As long as you are only running a single ultra, a corsair 520hx would be more than enough. clubit has it on sale for 99 after rebates right now.
Nothing to see here.

a Corsair 620 is more than enough for that system...
