For SLI 670, you will only need 850W if you plan to OC both GPUs.

:bounce:  :pt1cable:  the power supply is one of the most important features of the entire system. No you dont need to spend 300.00 on one but get something a little better. I would save 50 bucks on the ram and only get 8gb. Put that money towards a better power supply.But by the looks of it the fancy shiny leds seem to be an important part of your look so I understand how u might want to "gamble" Other wise its going to be a fun build.

I changed to the PSU to the one Ironslice recommended. I believe I need 16gb RAM, I do stock trading and have anywhere from 10-30 different things running simultaneously. Wouldn't having the extra RAM help with that?

Also, could I use a 750w PSU? or will I need the 850?

If you're only gonna be using the internet for that then 8GB will be fine. You'll only need 16GB if you're using several very heavy programs that require the extra RAM.

The 850W PSU is just for future proof in case you ever want to SLI the GTX 670's. Otherwise, you can go with this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I will go with 16gb then. (I do have several very heavy programs I will be running) Also, I am currently running 3 monitors but in the future I plan on running around 6 in the future, figured I would add another GPU then.

Do I need anything other than what I listed to install and use the liquid cooling system?

Unless he OCs both GPUs, 750W is fine.
