If you don't plan to SLI a good 600-650W PSU is more than enough. Now, I would add a SSD in your build as long as a none reference GPU. I would choose a Twin Frozr III 560ti because when this card overclocks it's just dominating.....plus WoW works better with NVidia GPUS for some reason..

I know 650W is more than enough if I'm staying with single GPU, but I do plan to upgrade eventually adding a couple more HDD, RAM, etc. The newegg PSU calculator says 650W would work... barely. That's why I'm going for 750W instead, I don't really feel confortable with "barely".
Also the reason I'm picking the 6950 ref is because I'm planning on flashing to 6970.
hey, dude... just coming over to check out your system per mine/your request. thanks.
first of all, VERY well organized and written. you look like you know what you want and need. i guess you are either verifying what you already know, or are just bragging. it's ok, we can do it all here. LOL
i am more of an AMD CPU guy and i see why you're turned on by the 2500: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=102
i'm going with the phenom II 965 black myself. it will do everything i need it to. i.e. games, video/GFX editing, 3D modeling.
I like to see you have the ASRock brand mobo. are you aware that ASrock is ASus's budget brand? - budget NOT in the "crap/garbage" line either!!! they have ALL the features of the high end asus boards at nearly half the price! i love it! getting asus equipment for biostar prices! (biostar is good too!) i was going to place my order THIS evening for my new rig and BAM!!! my board is out of stock today... i am REALLY bummed right now...
here is the board i would like to get: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

i am fairly new to tom's hardware and haven't found any way to add friends on this forum or i would add you as a friend. but then again, it's not a socialite type forum.
