But yeah, you can get another GTX 295 and SLI it with your other one. To be safe I'd say getting a slightly better PSU, maybe one with a little more amperage available. But 750W at 60A should do fine.
May of next year, I need this thing rocking awesomely! Anyway, the PhysX allows me to mix and match cards, which means I could put in a 300 series when they come out and it will work I guess?

I really probably won't, but I just want to have mroe stuff that is outstanding in a gaming PC. I have considered water cooling but it is not worth it..?

wow, you're kinda loaded with cash aren't you

Your coolermaster V8 will allow you to get a pretty decent overclock happening anyway, you can probably hit 4Ghz stable. That, plus a GTX 295 will pwn most things I can think of. In fact, it pwns everything I can think of.

If you get stuck overclocking post up here again in the overclocking section, someone will give you a hand.

Reviews are not very good, like they seem to go bad after a month.

The placement of the PCI slots are very awkward.

The HD audio plugin spot is very wierd aswell.
