Get the Creative X Fi instead.

10,000MIPS (the power of 24 audigy sound blasters)

You can't get it off Newegg yet but Best Buy has it.

Ok 2 things.

#1: Defiantly get the DFI SLI-DR, that motherboard isnt that bad, but you should get a different motherboard.

#2: That PSU powering that setup? lol
Here is a thread about power supply's based on having 7800GTX and DFI SLI-DR http://www.dfi-street.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10854

I hope you have better luck with the Xaser 3 as well. The cooling in that case is not all that great. And the fan wires are a pain in the *** to clean up.
