Nice build, when you get it, OC CPU and Unlock your 6950 to be at the performance of a 6970...
BTW, where's your HDD or SSD? If you all about gaming, go with SSD at least 60GB or 120GB depend how much games you install...

500w min reqs.. thats with everything in a build too.
GFX - The factory OC'd 560 is faster than the more expensive factory OC'd 6950 ..... but w/ the release of the hybrid 560/570 ....to be known as the 560-448, coming out on Tuesday for reportedly the same price, that's the card I'd be buying....at 1920 x 1200 or lower resolutions.
the psu is just sooo cheap tho u can beat that price....and the graphics card that is there has the easy switch forgot wat it was called and when on it gains 128 more shaders making a total of 1536 shaders. But is this setup overall compatible?
I'd expect dual modded OC'd 6950's to pull about 450W then under max load? If you add 200W for the OC'd CPU + mobo under load, then you're at 650W even. I mentioned on his previous thread that 650W could handle them but that it's cutting it close. If he ended up doing F@H, a 650W might end up loaded too high too often for longterm stability.
