I don't think that it needs multiple monitor support for triplehead anyway because to the system it appears as a single monitor but with a very high resolution.

Bump, please read last post by me, would really like some thoughts on it. I also have an additional question... Will a 750 watt psu be enough for all that and will a 1000w psu be enough when I add a second card for sli? Thank you.

a corsair 750tx will be fine for that system and it probably will handle 2 GTX 285's

everything else looks good

Will my existing heatsink fit an i7? If so, I know I already need a new bracket, won't try getting the one I have off. Also, is the ssc edition of that video card worth it?

-Edit-
Ok, found out it will, I just need the compatible bracket instead of the 775 bracket. Thoughts on ssc edition?

i believe your heatsink will work with i7 as long as you get the i7 bracket,

and no the SSC version of the 285 really aint worth the extra money over the regular version. get the regular version and overclock it to the speeds of the SSC

I'd grab up this combo deal:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

It's your motherboard with a GTX 285, and knocks off $35.

And here is another combo with the i7 920 and the OCZ Platinums:
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!
Knocks off $7...meh...better than nothing.

Thanks. I had those combos but changed the video card to just the "sc" version, 60 cheaper. I do have the cpu and mb combo to save 25 and using a promo code for memory saving 10 more.
