What happen to your Core i7 975 build thread? Going with the 920 over the 975 would've been a better build than this one... If you added in one SSD with the cost savings off the 920

As mentioned, your eggs are in the wrong basket. You are spending what, $550 on 3 cards then paying extra to get a board to support it?

If you want a sensible rig, get a i7 920 and a 5870, with the option to add a second later.

Say an 850HX PSU.

And why are you stuffing all the hot parts into a tiny case? is this for LAN parties? your description doesn't say so.

^+1 To Proximon's build

Though i should add, anything with 2tb of hardrive space, a SSD, and Crossfire is totally ego/muscle flexing. It just didn't cost a fortune, lol.
