Hello Gentlemen, Rockman here..

I had posted I thread few days ago, but I changed my mind on certain things. Here is the list of the items I will be using. The purpose of the rig is (Video editing, and gaming)

I am soo confused now. I want to run 2 GTX 570 in sli mode. I was recommend that a 850w power supply would be enough. However, I am a noob a this and based on what i understood.It looks like my maximum for SLi would be 2 560 ti. So i used thing from Neweg to help me out
http://educations.newegg.com/tool/psucalc/index.html

but also based on this site, that I got from reading the forums.

theoretically the 850w should be enough based on the sites and stuff.I really don't want to bottleneck and I am really confused :cry: 

WHAT I WANT: Modular or Semi modular PSU (If possible)trying to have great cable management.Also something reliable, and it won't kill my electric bill :D  any who..

Here are the specs of the rig with the links of the products.. I prefer Newegg as vendor.

Evga gpu's include Batman Arkham City at NCIX.
And yeah you need an 850W psu.
I'd also seriously consider buying at least one 128GB SSD(O/S) instead of two HDD( at current flood pricing)
You can get one for the price of an hdd.
Buy one hdd and wait a few months if you need another instead of paying inflated prices.

Better hsf = quieter and cheaper comes with two TY -140mm fans.( currently out of stock = i'd order one)

Oh and i wouldn't bother with 2x120mm side fans.
Much better to go with a 200mm(quieter) comes in red or blue.
