Hi Uncle,

i wont say if this is a great build because im too lazy to check, however
i have the:
3570k (4.2 ghz)
gigabyte 7950 windforce 3
8 gb corsair 1600 cl9 (low profile)
and a corsair CX750 (yes CX not TX)
and i can tell you, this is a crazy setup, it runs everything you would want to run (for example BF3 @ 70 fps)

i overclocked the 3570k cause it bottlenecked my gfx and could only get 40-75 fps on bf3 now i have 50-120)

As far as i know the TX has better specs than the CX so, you should be fine with it too (i accualy chose the CX cause it was cheaper, and had more watts, but less amperage though, so only one video card possible i think the TX has 53 amps so that should handle 2 7950's)

i hope i helped you,
Demisor

yea i was hoping to have two cards eventually the board seems like it will oc the cpu to 4.8 no probs so that is good do you think that the tx at 650 will be enough to run 2 7950s also is enermax cooler the best for under 40 pounds thanks

Idk about the board, but if it will handle the cpu @ 4.8 then it'll be just fine however though i'd go for a TX750 just to be sure :} as cpu cooler, i have a scythe mugen 3, and i couldn't be happier!
