yeah you listed fortron in the cheap yet good pwr supply(in your building pc thread)!
well i'll need a mid tower, and like it to be black steel, and that leaves me with 50 bones left to purchase one.

also with two 7800 cards i could do more O.C. ing... like 2.4 depending on my ram?

If you want to OC at some point, i would suggest going with a DFI. I dont know how well that GIGABYTE oc's but the DFI is recommended alot for OCing. If you can, go with a seagate or western digital for a hard drive. As for ram, check out some value ram by corsair.
