That GTX 285 would be awsome in sli....but I would have to find a good price on a used card before I would go that route....I would not spend $300 for a new one at this point.

The cheapest one I can find (on Newegg anyway) is just under $400 It's gone up in price since I bought my first one... strange..

^**** man, you should really fold for the team, you would push 12k with those gpu's alone.

Like said, get a lower wattage psu, and get faster ram, the linked items for those two look good.

The Corsair Dominator memory is good but way overpriced for the performance value.

This memory is the same speed and has the same timings for $70 cheaper.
