Get a Corsair 650w instead of the Chieftec. It's a much better PSU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Which Corsair XMS3 6GB kit were you looking at? there's 6 different ones with different frequencies and timings. The cheapest ones aren't all that great, some of the mid-priced ones are okay. My favorite pick on RAM from last week just went up in price :(  it was a DDR3 1600 6GB Kit from OCZ that had timings of 7-7-7-24. Goes for $146 now though.

If you can wait a week or 2, you might want to wait for the ATI 5870's to come out, even if you decide to stick with the 4870, it should be cheaper after the 5870 is available.

That 650 w corsair hasn't got enough connections because I want the ability to put in another videocart in crossfire if my cart isn't good enough anymore.

And I was looking at the memory with a CL9 ( 9-9-9-24 ) timing. I know it's the cheapest one but I'm already at 1400$.

Thx for the advice for the videocart. I'll have a look at the 5870 when it comes out!

thx for the response

You might want to look at these power supplies:

go with the 750w Corsair then, not much more expensive than the chieftec, and it also has a single, high output +12v rail, that chieftec splits the +12v rail to 5 or 6, which really isn't recommended for the newer cards.

Are you reusing that Samsung F1 from a previous system? I can't even find that model for sale anywhere. If your budget allows, you might want to consider upgrading to a WD Caviar Black. Anything in the 640GB - 1TB range will give you much better application performance, and you can still keep the SpinPoint F1 as a storage drive if it's being reused.
