Well if you all believe that the corsair above is good enough I'll get it. I still have a little while until the UPS comes and picks up items at newegg so I'm listening to all opinions still!

520hx is more quiet than the 620hx
but they have the exact same amperage and the 620hx has like 2 more 4-pin molex and is louder

Alright I purchased the Corsair PSU!
Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-620HX ATX12V v2.2 and EPS12V 2.91 620W Power Supply 100 - 240 V UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC Class B, TUV, CCC, C-tick - Retail

Oh and what is G0 stepping?

As for overclocking, I definantley will! I'll have to figure out what extra I'll need to do for cooling and how exactly to overclock. (Totally new to the oc area) And of course I'll take some pictures for you all. The setup will look great!

excellent PSU you ordered there. Good parts all round.
G0 stepping is just a name for a revision of the Q6600 cpu.. its a new modified version.. apparently more power effecient = less heat = more overhead to overclock. Basically thats a good chip to overclock

Yeh man get into overclocking.. its not very hard now days.. i suggest reading up some tutorials to get you started.. the do's and dont's so to speak. There definately more performance to be squeazed out them components.

Put her together man and were waiting to see the final result

get the new 780i since you are running two GT's. go ahead and take advantage of the PCI-e 2.0

also. look into some better ram. i.e Crucial, GSkillz, Patriot, Mushkin, or OCZs

mgcook, how much of a performance boost do you think the extra bandwidth of pci-e 2.0 would give?
