  2. Why buy a 620W PSU for $90 when it can't even SLI that card (not nuff PCIE connectors...) something like an antec TP 750W has almost the same quality (Different between excellent and great..) 130 W more, and has enough connectors to power a 2nd 570 down the line... and is only $90

    Try 4 gigs of RAM instead - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231193

    Maybe get an SSD if you really want to with the saved money.

    So 1260 minus rebates (probably 20-50~) and another saved 50 will leave 110-140 for an Ssd if you want, otherwise well, you can spend the money on w/e you want.

    Does the OP intend on going with dual vid cards ? Try no. Is that mobo I posted a decent mobo for dual vid cards ? No again. Same with the psu. Why ? Again the OP does not plan on using dual vid cards and does not plan on over clocking.

    Does the OP plan on using his/her computer for video editing ? That's a big YES. Does 8 gigs of RAM help with this...YES again.

    Seriously do not post on here unless you read the OP's post or your just sucking up this sites bandwidth with useless drivel.
