You really don't want to try to stuff that non-modular PSU into that little case. You probably don't want to put a second 5850 in there either.

Here's a more efficient PSU with better performance and hybrid cabling:
Antec TP-750

I'd agree about the non modular PSU. Its a very good PSU, but I can see a cable nightmare.
I really like the motherboard, that's a nice pick.
Looks like a nice lan party build.
Instead of the barracuda, I'd get a samsung f3 500GB.

I'm recommending the f3 drive based on personal experience and best in class performance. It is simply faster.

ST3500418AS is probably the faster gaming drive, based on benchmarks that approximate gaming usage.
We go through various favorite gaming drives on this board, and I suspect we are tending in the Seagate direction these days.

I'll be building a mATX in the next couple weeks. I am using the NZXT Vulcan, just to throw out another case option for ya. Crossfiring shouldn't be a prob with the Vulcan. Although, with the 5850 you shouldn't really need to worry about that.

The MSI mobo is basically about the only option for crossfiring in the mATX category. Hate the lack of options there.

NZXT Vulcan seems sick i cant believe i missed this case but i guess it can only use NZXT 200mm case fans? thats what im getting from the reviews
