Hello, building a new PC for the first time in 8 years (yes, my current machine is THAT old). Looking for some opinions. The following lists what I plan to purchase. Is the list overkill, inadequate or just about right? Thanks.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Gigabyte GA-X48-DS4 OCZ Reaper HPC 2x2GB 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V (2) Radeon HD 4780 1GB (in Crossfire) (2) Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB (in RAID) Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatality regular DVD-RW Antec 900 Case + any fans i need for more cooling Windows XP or Vista (not sure yet)
Uses: games, everyday use, DVD watching, may do a bit of overclocking (not really hardcore about it)
Concern is the PSU, would it be adequate if i were to add another hard drive or two in the future? At this stage, it's more unlikely, but just wondering. I was considering the HX1000 but that seems overkill to me and costs about $150 more.
Thanks for your responses.

PSU is a good choice for 2 HD4870s and plenty of headroom for a couple of additional hard drives and overclocking. If you're ordering off newegg a pretty good deal for the antec 1200 dropping it's price to @ $130 with free shipping.
thanks for the heads up, that is a pretty good price for that case.
