ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I am trying to build a new system, my first custom build. I already have the i7 950. But I need all the other parts. I have always been into water cooling, but I don't know if I need it. I also am unsure if I should wait until the new line of GPU's come out. If I were to buy GPUs now, WHICH ONES WOULD I BUY just out of curiosity. ANY ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED
SPARKLE COMPUTER CORP Gold Class GW-EPS1000DA 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - 250
Don't skimp on your PSU, especially running this many power hungry components (ESPECIALLY with overclocks). Sparkle is a pretty good competitor here, and this PSU is 80+ Gold, which is what you should be looking for, and modular, which is a nice to have with this many components.
That leaves you 800 to pick up a nice monitor (or 2 kinda nice monitors). Of course, there is a TON of fat you can cut out here. You could drop down to a single 5970 and save $250, you could nix the SSD or get a smaller drive, but this fits the budget you outlined. This machine is a beast, and could pretty much rape any game out there right now.
