My questions are
Power supply, would i have enough watts to run everything above? If so, would it run 2 HD 5970's?

Is there anything better for my money?

More about enough power
  1. 1) PSU is good enough for the two 5970's... it is a very good PSU. I'm running it myself.
    2) I would recommend against the VRaptor and the Xeno Network card. They are not worth the money for little or no performance increase... IMO. I would just go with the on-board 10/100/1000 LAN and I would recommend the Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB hard drive, which pretty much matches the performance of the VRaptor for 1/4 the price.
  2. awesome, thanks :D i'm gunna order it right now
  3. I agree with tecmo34. The VelociRaptor is no faster than the Samsung F3 drives. Gaming NIC cards are also a waste of money. Here's an article on the subject:
