  1. Looks ok, although not sure what your going to do with a 1200w power supply. You got some 18" subs in your computer room or something?

    can u suggest an alternative or if i go crossfire in future is it ok with that power.
  3. For the PSU go for the Seasonic X-750, Superb quality, plenty of power, $130 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151087

    Other than that, drop the Mobo to the Pro version ($175 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131703&cm_re=p8p67_pro-_-13-131-703-_-Product ), and get rid of the MX-4 and you're good to go.

    A decent 750w will do just fine for that build, but here's an 850w in case you decide to up grade your vid cards later on down the road and you want some head room.

    compound.

    Yep. The 932 is a HUGE case. Check the dimensions on that case @ newegg...it's big.
