ok im trying to build a new pc and i need advice and opnions about this build
Motherboard: Asus Maximus Formula

what would be the advantages of getting a rampage instead of a maximus??
and i need more opinions on the PSU im unsure if its enough ...
The Rampage is an X48 board and the Maximus is a X38. They are exactly the same but the X48 is a "binned" X38 chip which supposedly is capable of higher speeds and more stability. I have the Rampage and I love it so I would also suggest you switch.
Corsair 750 is plenty of power for that system. I have a Thermaltake Toughpower 750 with 60a on the 12v rail and I remember a while back sites running SLI'ed 8800GTX's with my PSU so I'm sure the Corsair can handle a couple 4870's.
