Possibly due, to the bugs of the 680i?....or are they worked out already?

interesting...thanks for the clarification. Makes me feel even better about getting my friend an Abit Fatality 650i for his build

The bugs might not have helped but I still say it just has to do with the design. Regardless yes the 650i can handle SLI 8800GTX's just fine with as we said on average 1 or 2 FPS BETTER than the 680i. The MSi P6N is a really good deal.

How much would I even save with NCIX with this build. I noticed the 8800gts was more then 50 dollars less and the e6600 was like 50 less but nothing else was really more expensive. one thing is for some reason i just trust tigerdirect.ca more maybe just cus there site looks better or something.

I have dealt with both and the service has been the same.

You could save yourself some money as this Ultra right here is about half the price and will run your system just fine as well. It is a highly recommended PSU.

I thought Ultra, wasn't a good, or as good company for PSUs. Are they reliable?

They are pretty much the same as Rosewill when it comes to PSU's. They have had a few bad ones with their older OEM but ever sinced they switched they have been making rock solid units for the money. That model I linked is one of the units that was made by a good OEM and it was jonnyguru tested to be stable and good for the money.
