i suggest you use a corsair 750w at the minumum.

if you want some extra for future upgrades, maybe triple geforce 480s,

the antec would probably suit your needs better in the long run, and also more bang for the buck LOL.

also, i would recommemd two hard drives, because if this is an extremely high p[erformance system you may want striped raid or maybe mirrored wd raptors for data security / peice of mind

thanks for your reply

i think i am reading this word BOTTLE NECKING all too often on this forum

i think if anyone has an idea how a workstation connects to various stock exchanges only then can you answer the user end questions regarding this mother board,

and that requires actual experience or exposure to high frequency trading

therefore i still cannot understand what actually bottle necking implies here,

Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (32MB Cache) outperforms Raptors and is much much cheaper.
