I suggest a 450-500 watt power supply. Everything else looks good.

Yeah, with a that vid. card, memory, cpu, etc. you'll definitely need a 450W min, especially if you want to upgrade in the future and not worry about a psu...

Btw, a 10,000rpm hd is pretty loud. For the money though, I would definitely go with a hitcahi desktar 500gb, which is almost as fast but with tons more storage...

Would you reccomend two 6800 Ultras or one 7800gtx?¤

one 7800GTX. I'd say the performance is about the same, but if u get 7800GTX u can get another one when u need it. (and then it will be alot cheaper) And I don't think they make 6800 ultras anymore.

The 7800gtx is insane, that system will keep you very happy for a long time.

Yeah, one 7800gtx, because of upgradibilty... the 7800gtx's is one heck of a card. Dual 6800ultra's are nice, but still, the 7800gtx pwns because you can always add one later and have ultimate performance...

ya go to nvidia they have recomended psu wattages. Also consider switching the asus board to a msi, gigabyte or dfi-lanparty board since they don't get bottlenecks
