It's more than enough power, and has room for future upgrades.

Another thought to consider, going with those cases. Those cases I have suggested, have better airflow, than the Alienware P2. So not only will you save money, but you'll keep your components cooler.

Thermaltake's watercooling kits, are considered unreliable. Especially the Big Water kits. They're cheap, but you get what you paid for. They've been known for leakage. You don't want that happening do you? If you really want a watercooling kit, be prepared to pay alot. Heres a site suggestion, with good watercooling kits, for the money:

All of the P35 chipsets, at the moment, do not support SLI, as far as I know. I've only seen the ones that have two PCIe slots, support Crossfire.....but I've heard the X38s are confirmed to have support for SLI. They are very high-end motherboards, designed especially with overclocking and gaming performance, in mind.

If you really want the SLI option, even though I'm against it....because when you have the money for an extra graphic card, theres going to be a single card, that smashes them....but hey...it's your money.....I would suggest the MSI P6N Platinum.
