750$ Gaming PC / NCIX with price match

After a long 2 weeks of research on newegg, tigerdirect and ncix I came up with these. Total cost of 762$ including shiping, taxes and assembly + I think i'll be getting around 50$ of MIR. What do you think? Is the PSU good enough for dual 6850?

  1. Hows the airflow in a 912 if I had that megaflow 200mm on top as an exhaust? I might aswell add a 120mm on front as an intake.1
  2. Mmmm, do you need a hard drive?
  3. I wanted to get one but I could not find any good deal on NCIX, they dont sell the F3. I could always use my old one though.
  4. What is your current HDD? NCIX has some specials on some Seagate 7200.12 drives 1TB for 50$ or 500GB for 40$. If you need volume storage, they also have WD15EARS (1.5TB) for 70$ and it gives you free shipping for entire order.
  5. My old one is a 250gb seagate barracuda 7200.9 8MB 11MS Sata2.
  6. I guess a newer drive like the 7200.12 wouldn't hurt, if you don't need tons of storage space, the 40$ 500GB one would be more than enough. That is up to you.
  7. Alright! As for the rest, is everything ok? Mobo, ram, and psu all fit together? Enough watts for a future crossfire setup?
  8. If you don't add anything else to your system (beside that possible 2nd Radeon 6850), 650W should be enough to even include some OC. If you want to be on the safe side, you can go for a 700-750W PSU if the price difference isn't too great.
