solid build u have there

the only problem is that u will not be able to run sli with that psu
so u will have to get a single powerfull gpu or sell that psu and get another one
also u can't fit the 5970 in that case. that what happens if u don't research

Thanks for your response mrhoshos96. I have done some research in regarding to the PSU with 2 GTX 460 Sli. 650W is just enough for 2 gtx 460 sli and I7 930.
Here is the link to power consumption calculations.
Can't find it right now

Here is the link I asked in regarding to the PSU
