Greetings again all,

I'm just looking for some feedback on the below build. I've already ordered the parts and I know a few may not agree on some, but I'd appreciate a few comments.

SFF Gaming Build:
Case - Silverstone Sugo SG01
PSU- Hiper 580w Moduler (May not be enough for the 8800GTS, but we'll see..the EVGA requires 26amps combined and the Hiper puts out 30A...so it should be just fine)
CPU - C2D e6600 (I plan on OC'ing a bit)
Memory - 2 x 1gb G.Skill DDR2 800 (6400) ram
Hard Drives - 2 x Western Digital Cavier SE16 250g drives in Raid 0 (I had a Raptor in the build, but wanted a quiter solution.)
Video Card - EVGA 8800 GTS 640mb KO
Motherboard - Abit Fatal1ty F-190HD mATX
CPU Cooler - Silverstone NT06 Passive cooling (cooled by 120mm PSU fan)
DVD/RW - Samsung
OS - Windows Vista 32bit version
Monitor - NEC MultiSync 20WMGX2 20.1-inch LCD Display/ Widescreen (My big spulrge on this build. I've wanted a good monitor for a looooong time now and this baby rocks!!)

Depending on how I like the onboard audio, I may or may not upgrade later on to an X-FI. I also plan on upgrading to 4gigs of ram.

So what do you all think? I'm sticking with a single card solution from here on out. My previous system was decked out with SLI and I was just never really impressed. I think I would prefer to just upgrade the Vid Card when needed.

Thanks for your thoughts all!

Thanks mpilchfamily. I certainly appreciate your advice. I had already ordered the Hiper and being as anxious as I am, decided to try it out first before sending it back. I know I'm pushing it a bit with amps, but figured it couldn't hurt to give it a shot for a bit. Although if my Mobo does not arrive before Saturday I'm going to return it for a beefier PSU. Yes, the Sugo can handle full ATX PSUs. You just need to be careful of the length of the DVD/CD Drive and PSU.

What do you think of the build besides the PSU?

I noticed the new Enermaxs aren't on your list. I see they are pretty pricey, but do you have an opinion on them at all? I think I read that the Infinity 620w has a combined 50 Amps.

Thanks again!
