I recommend this PSU, please note you will not be running SLI with this PSU.

If you wait till the end of the month prices will be dropping on the CPU's, you'll save around 80$ there.

If you don't NEED or specifically want Vista Ultimate, you could downgrade it to Vista Home Premium and save about $80 dollars...

I personally believe Ultimate is a waste, though there are many who would argue this, however the fact is that many of the users would use the features offered in Ultimate which are not already available in Home premium. I never said anything regarding this because I assumed the OP really wanted this, but since ruthandtroy posted this I thought I just voice my 2 cents on the issue.

Ha HAR... I RULE! Nah, glad you agree james. It is important to work out if you would really use the extra "features" (the word bloatware comes to mind... :whistling: ), because $80 is a big saving... If you know you need it or want it though, sure go ahead.

I have the antec 900, trust me you'll be happy with the cooling.
No I don't recommend the PSU that I recommended for you to be used for SLI. Do you plan on doing so in the future? Remember one high end graphics card is better then 2 lower end GPU's.

Looks pretty decent and will run vista very nice. I would suggest getting a different DVD Drive as the Lite-On drives arent that great as ive got one and i get loads of problems like read and write errors when using some disks. I Suggest you get the LG one its cheaper and better made.
