New Egg wish list

Wish list

Additional Comments: Plan to do Eyefinity as i can get better/more monitors and crossfire as well, i know my PSU on that is list not the greatest but i've had the older version of it in my currect PC for 4.5 years and it hasnt given me any problems. I haven't looked into any of the combo deals etc to try and save a few bucks but if i do i'd like it to go eithe to a better GPU or MoBo maybe a better PSU. I know i could be ok with Air cooling but I wanted to be able to get to the ram if i decide to double it without having to take off the CPU cooler. My concern is there is bottle necks in this system The SSD is for a boot drive and didn't know if 128 was to big/small (win 7 64bit) also shoudl i just spend the extra money on a 6mbs HDD. Anything is going to be an upgrade current system in an AMD athlon 64X2 3.3ghz and nvidia 8600GT on an asus m2n32sli deluxe with 4 gb ram.
Thanks in advance
