Well, I know that I made a previous post about my build I was going to do but things change so here is what I'm thinking of actually rolling with. Please let me know if you guys see any problems with anything. I am going to be overclocking and going to SLI in the future as well as watercooling so please keep that in mind. I think my power supply should be able to handle it but let me know what you guys think.

Case: Silverstone TJ09

Mobo: EVGA 680i SLI

Ram: Corsair PC2 9136

Video: EVGA Nvidia 8800GTX

PSU: Thermaltake 750W

CPU: E6000

HD: Seagate 320GB 7200.10

I'm going to use my old drives so not posted same with mouse and keyboard let me know what you guys think any suggestions greatly welcomed.

Also if anyone has this case I would love to hear from you. My main concern is it's not going to hold the 8800 but I've seen review pics with them using 8800 but still has me worried cause I read one guys post on newegg about how he had to mod his case to have it fit but in the review I read it said that the case would hold it no problem. Let me know thanks all in advance.

I dunno about the case, I expect it'd be fine. Although, I must question what's so special about it that it costs $300.

It's a little concerning that the power supply you listed isn't in Nvidia's list of GTX SLi supporting PSUs, and a similar 750W Thermaltake (the W0117RU) is only recommended for the GTS in SLi. Still, with apparently 60A for 12V, I think you should be okay.

Everything else looks good, as far as I can tell. I've got the 680i+e6600 too.

I can kinda see why its so expensive. The flip up usb ports on top of the case, the plexiglass, the power supply mount on the bottom of the case. The devices in the upper 5.25 bays may cause air flow issues with the power cords going from bottom to top. Its pretty cool, however I wouldn't drop $300 on a case.

Thats a really good build. The case is really good , and if you can spend that much on Ram 8O then i guess money is good with you. :mrgreen: :trophy: :D  Enjoy

The main thing I was worried about was the PSU but I'm pretty sure 60A will be enough if need be I'll just up the power supply later on if it's not enough.
