    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139021 Is this the one you were talking about?? it has really good reviews.

    Check out the NZXT Hale90 series, I have the 650w model and love it, very well made quiet and gold plus. They are a little pricey on newegg right now but I paid about 100 for mine on sale from newegg a little over 6 months ago. The unit is made by super flower and has a really good review on johnnyguru.com
  4. I would reccomend changing most of your build if its not set in stone yet.

    going with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128510 will save you $50 over the motherboard you chose

    550 GTX's are aprox $120 a piece, SLI's drawbacks outway its potential improvements at this pricepoint and should be replaced by a single $560 TI at $229 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130623, with a $30 mail in rebate thats $40 savings over what you already picked.

    by going for a single graphics card you won't require as much power draw, which will lead to energy savings, for your PSU i would reccomend an Antec Earthwats 650W for $75, which would give you the oportunity to upgrade to a 2nd 560ti later.

    As for your hard drives you should really consider a SSD in the 128gb+ range and a single 1 tb drive

    Lets change a few things!

    i3 2120
    ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 or ASUS P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 if you got the money
    GeForce GTX 560 Ti
    WD 2TB
    64GB M4
    CM Hyper 212 Evo

    Wait for Keplar and the 7800 series. It'll be worth it.
