This configuration any good? I would like to keep the build around $800. Im using it for multimedia and some gaming, also with some room for upgrades. My OS will be Windows 7, im getting it from my school and Ill will be using a larger external hard drive for storage so I don't need a large internal drive. Also would it be a good idea to get better fans if I overclock it and can I run two Viedo cards with this never done it before? I haven't deciede on a monitor I'm planing on also buying a new HD Tv to use.

Hi Jcorio, welcome to GTG :)

The configuration you currently have set up is looking good. The case you have chosen seems to have some good fans in it, so you probably wouldn't need to add any (assuming you're not over clocking too high).

The motherboard you have should be fine if you need to upgrade it when the time comes. It also supports Crossfire so you can run 2 video cards if you want.

The PSU you have is where things might go wrong. For all intents and purposes, this is a great PSU. However, if you plan on overclocking and adding a second video card, I would say that you should maybe move up to a 750W CPU just to be safe.

Hope that helps.
