Thanks. I'm assuming you mean this board?

Also, if you haven't, can you just check the PSU compatibility with the graphics cards? That's the main thing I'm worried about. I got the suggestion for that PSU here, but then I checked it myself, and to me, it doesn't seem like the PSU provides enough power.
