the PSU is WAY overkill even for crossfiring a pair of 6950's

750 watt is going to handle it without breaking a sweat .

The high latency cl9 ram is cheap but thats its only good feature . For gaming you only need a 2 x2 gig kit anyway so make it 1600 MHz cl7 [ or 8 ] and low voltage

what resolution is your monitor?

^ I dunno, the PSU is pretty cheap w/ the combo. Overkill is overkill, but if it is cheap. Might as well get it. He has the perfect ram kit too, it's fairly cheap, might as well get more ram for better multi, I'm running only 4gb and I'm starting to see the lag when running to many progs.

I am running a 1920x1080 monitor.

But what if I go SLI in the future? Will the 750 handle it?
