I am ready to build my first gaming PC. I'd like to keep the cost range between $700 and $850. The parts I have listed are at the top end of my range. I think these parts are all compatible and I'd like the ability to add another GPU in the future. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

600W PSU that is less expensive and has free shipping: OCZ StealthXStream OCZ600SXS 600W It also provides about the same amount of +12V power (48amps) as the RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS

The EVGA 512-P3-N884-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ is only $10 more and probably worth it. For SLI 2x 9800GTX+ you want a 550W PSU with 30amps +12V power, or better.

Get a SATA DVD burner. OEM is OK - Vista can handle DVD duties just fine. Your MB has a spare SATA data cable. You don't need the software and cable that comes in the Retail version.

Your case and fan come to about $50 after rebate, plus shipping ($20 to my zipcode). Look around for a better case that already has 2 fans but comes with free shipping for about $70. Your total cost will be about the same.

I would recommend getting a non-sli board. I like this one:

Then change the GPU to the HD 4850 1gb. Its about the same price and is usually better in most games. You can then xfire that card on that mobo. The 7series nvidia chipsets are not very good, they have a lot of stability issues.

Monitor down below has a better response time, and if only going with one vid card, then I would go with a smaller psu like the one down below.
