thermaltake is a good brand isn't it? well anyway its also got the 4 12V rails, and the 8800GTX uses 2 i think, so SLi will need 4.

I'll look around and see what i need, how hard is water cooling to be installed?

You amuse me. The 8800GTX uses 2 PCI-E connectors, not two +12v rails.

Oh and i do lots of stuff at the same time, so i might as well get a crazy amount of ram, vista allows it too.

probably going with the golden orb II. looks good.
READ THE STICKY THAT I LINKED. Don't post until you do.

And the Zalman 9500/9700 is better than the Golden Orb II.

You'll want to get this PSU. 18A x 3 on the +12v rails.

I said PCI-E connectors, which are cables that come with your PSU, not PCI-E slots, which are on your motherboard.

Yes, I know, that's a bad website anyway.

Yes, ofcourse the PSU has them. And if it doesn't (it does), then each 8800GTX comes with two connectors that take two molex connectors and convert them to one PCI-E connector (so you would need 4 free Molex for 2 PCI-E). But don't worry about that, the PSU comes with 2 PCI-E connectors, you won't have to worry about the adapters until you decide to go SLI.

Because the 680i motherboards are not worth the money. Infact, they're a waste of money.

Private, change the motherboard.
