I would suggest a good 650-750W power supply unless you plan on going sli with your graphics card. And what about the optical drive?

The arctic freezer 7 isn't that great. The hyper 212 cools better, for a lower price.

Very true. Your PS is a bit overkill unless you decide on a CPU that needs 130w (i7 hexa-core), add a RAID HDD set and go SLI/Crossfire on your cards. And OWC (and other companies) make a 120GB SSD that is at least 20% faster than the Crucial SSD.

Hi and thanks for the quick replys. I am thinking about going sli or crossfire in the future that's why the big gpu. I will look at the hyper 212. The optical I've not decided on yet as I wanto a blueray too. What's a raid hdd?
