But there are a few questions we need to know 1. Are you going to OC 2. Add a 2nd GPU 3. replace that GPU latter and add 2 GTX275 4. add more HDD DVD blu-ray But for a i7 920 rig that can OC well and use 2 GPUs / 2 HDD /and a DVD / blu-ray i would look @ a Corsair 750 Think of what you might do down the road and post back Also look @ some OCZ Gold ram and a samsung F# 500 HDD tecmo34 a b B Homebuilt system October 31, 2009 3:09:05 PM @OP...
