Hey Viper I just saw your spec, your system is very similar to what I want. Any reason for getting the 700w PSU? And do you think onboard sound will be sufficient?

Great minds think alike.

I got the 700w because I might go SLi sometime in the future and just for peace of mind. You will be fine with 600w.

Myself, I care a lot about what something sounds like. If you are really particular about sounds and that sort, then I would not go with onboard. In other words it will suffice, but not unless you want great sound. Basically:

onboard = OK
X-Fi or Audigy = Awesome

Hope that helped. Good luck.

It does help, thank you and everyone else who has been posting, I'm >| |< close to ordering, just making last minute decisions.

I'm still not sold on the 8800gtx vs. the 8800gts yet, an additional $180 is a lot for that upgrade.
