RE: My 1st Gamming CPU
The 800W PSU is quite overkill (not that that's a bad thing, just saying) but besides from that everything looks good. I'm assuming you built this before Sandy Bridge and the Radeon HD 6950/6970s came out.

RE: My 1st Gamming CPU
Wanted to have power supply for future upgrades allready there. The vidio cards were under 200.00 after rebate. Figured Sandy Bridge still had issues. Wanted to keep my budget of around 2000.00, (1550.00 towards parts and 490.00 went towards software, Labor and Warranties) and still have a decent build (Bang for the Buck) which I did.
