Are you a student ?

If so, Microsoft has awesome deals on windows 7... but only for students.

I'm no expert. Several different people I spoke w/ related they did not consider Windows 7 Ultimate to be worth the additional $ compared to Professional, for what additional it offers. I was also thinking your power supply looked somewhat high buck $ for the rated output, but again, I am not expert in this area and this could be a great choice. Too many choices is the problem... Good luck.

thanks, he SPECIFICALLY wanted ultimate, so no choice there. the psu is a bit high, but he plans on doing crossfire or quadfire in the future, so might as well. also that is a very very highly rated psu, so any other suggestions are welcome.
