Shows that there is questionable value in going for faster than 1333/1600MHz RAM on the Sandy Bridge platform.

A system with two 6950s needs a PSU with four PCIe connectors, which the 650TXV2 doesn't have - it only has two.
This is the same internally, but does come with the necessary connectors:

Hi Gnasherpro, looks solid to me, one suggestion might be to get slower ram.

Unless your going for CRAZY overclocks, or just want to have bragging rights, ddr3 1600 should suffice.

Thanks to both of you, the parts such as motherboard and ram were mostly there for price reference, but it is still good to know things I might have overlooked.

Oh, and Newt, its always about having bragging rights :D
