That power supply in that case is not going to work at all what so ever in anyway shape or form.

With the components you plan on installing, you'll need a solid SLI/PCI Express PSU - and something with at least (2) +12v rails @ 20a each.

I suggest PCP&C Turbo-Cool 510 SLI Deluxe...

READ THE LIST
I did read the list.

And see a DFI Lanparty SLI-DR MOBO which requires a PSU that is ATX12v (2.01) and an SLI ready PSU. And then I saw a OCZ powerstream 520W which is not SLI ready and is only ATX12v (2.0).

This power supply might work, but will be unstable. He could probably buy a (Molex to 4 addition pin) adapter, but i wouldn't recommend that. I'm sure DFI wouldn't recommend it either.

Oh, I just read the change in the list. No more SLI MOBO.
Well for future knowledge, you must take this into consideration. If you recommend someone something, you should have a soild knowledge about what you are recommending... Just a tip...

I appreciate the advice for the top end stuff, even though I probably won't get it <---- poor college student. It is good to know what I can look for if I ever do get rich. I am a Business - Computer Information Systems Major so you never know.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a good case that would fit everything we have been talking about? Also any recommendations for good medium price speakers would be nice. Thanks.

I would probably use the payment plan that NewEgg allows to get this stuff so I can have as much money as i need, i just don't want to be putting paychecks into this for the rest of my life since I have a 1 year old baby and another on the way and my wife hates anything that has to do with computers anyway. =( that added to the fact that I am a 22 year old college student and I also need to get a second car so that my wife can have one too I would prefer to keep the cost as low as I possibly can but I still want to get a near top of the line gaming computer.

if you want to spend some money, dont go with a 19in LCD monitor and just get a nice 17 in probably 16 in viewable CRT monitor or even a 19 in CRT monitor which would prob ably be the price of a 17 in LCD monitor.

I had a question about the case that you showed, it looks good for what I need. Would I be able to just ust he Power supply that comes with it or should I still buy the one that you made a link to in the earlier post?

Also a review of the case said "...make sure you buy a 20-24pin adapter for the PSU if your MB requires a 24pin power connector..."

What does that mean? Would I need to get something different than what we had listed earlier? Thanks
