Change the PSU to a Corsair 550vx.

I'd prob get the 650 or 750 for upgrade purposes in the future

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

But the Thermaletake will be MORE than enough, I have one and it performs amazingly. and it's nice and cool.

Thats really good build in my opinion

But why you want an Nvidia motherboard ? Are you planning to SLI ?

I figure that this is gonna be my only complete build. I needed stuff in it that i could upgrade.

So in the future i dont have to upgrade the PSU and the motherboard but i can just switch out processors and video cards and HD's

bump, I was about to ask the same.

Why not a p45/x38/x48? The benefits are better overclocking for your cpu and a nice platform for crossfire, although you don't need to crossfire.

If you plan to SLI though, would you mind telling me which cards you plan on SLI-ing so I can discourage you

I think what you have is just fine. Theres room to grow, for some reason this new generation of gaming boomers think you need to spend $2-3k+ and OC it and the works to have a solid, dependable system, Go with your gut and have fun.

Thats odd cause I m pretty sure anything over 1,000$ is a little overkill and once you hit over 1,500$ your just wasting money. Besides why spend 3K on a rig when 800$ is more then enough for creating a rig that will last for at least 2 or 3 years before it starts to become outdated.
