    Your second link is bust, unless there's some way you can use a PSU as memory ;)

    Do not limit all your shopping to newegg if your on any kind of a budget.

    Watch this... I'm about to save you money and improve on that build of yours. :) I just saved you $89.11 with the mobo/cpu combo not to mention it's free shipping. Now do a google search on "ewiz coupons" or "ewiz promo codes" and save another $5 - $15 on that mobo / cpu combo.

    Intel Core i7 Processor i7-920 2.66GHz 8MB LGA1366 CPU, Retail

    Now seeing how that case has room for dual gpu's lets add a psu that will push two of those cards if you decide to add another one in the future.

    While your at it, it would be shame to use that nice Xigmatek you have in your build and not add any thermal compound. It kind of defeats the purpose.

  3. I never order from more then one site. cuz you might get the motherboard and CPU one day then youll wait another week for the psu you ordered then another day for something else. I like getting it all at once=]
