    Also this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.176939

    "Bloodrage" is a neat name, but you'd do better with an Asus P6T Deluxe V2.

    With what you save, get a GTX285.
  2. lol least build it in a full tower :P
  3. you might want to look at the corsair 750 watt psu.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006&Tpk=corsair%20psu%20750
    its less, single 60 amp 12 v rail. awesome psu. quiet fan. lots of connectors & stuff.
  4. I have the BloodRage and I am in love with it! Having absolutely no problem and can hit 4GHz on my particular core i7 920 without any hiccups..The only problem I see is no tripple SLI (atleast not with cards that have dual slot coolers without modding)..

    and I second xnknown..build it in a full tower for sure..
