Ultra X3 for PSU... I don't think that I can return the case (shoulda posted this with the rest but hit enter for some reason) but I'm not skimping on anything else... just didn't know about the case, this is my first build, should be finished in feb or march

i seriously think you should "skimp" and get the q6600 :laughing:
much more performance/$$$$$.
also crucial ballistix are high performing
and i would recommend a single ultra unless your playing, on a monstrous monitor or dual or tri monitor setup.
