looks pretty good for your uses, though you could drop down to a good 450-500w PSU (Antec has a neo 500w for $50 on the egg)

Thanks for looking. I'd like to get a little more input just because some of these deals expire today. ttt

it's good, you could save by using a lesser psu. If you do not intend on upgrading, a decent 400-500watt will be enough

Thubans and Nehalems/i7 Lynnfields go toe to toe from what i gather but obviously fall short of Gulftown ^^ LGA 2011 to replace LGA 1366, LGA 1155 to replace LGA 1156 and the above price with SSD though is of prime importance hehe
