You would need:
The sleeving
The Shrink Wrap
The different connectors (if you choose to change them while you have de-pinned the PSU)
A Heat Gun (sold at Harbor Freight) or HairDryer (probably easier to obtain)
Universal de-pinning tool. (F-CPU sells this)
An afternoon alone.
Anti-Depressants

They charge alot (190 dollars) for what they call "The Works!" Which I believe doesn't include the Molex/SATA connectors? It only says ATX/EPS 8pin/PCI-E.
i have plenty of time

as for the anti-depressants
thats what Jack Daniels is for

in most of the benches I've seen the biggest jump in FPS at 1920x1080 is from a single GTX 285 to SLI GTX 285s, tri-SLI really shows minimal gains, except for Crysis Warhead where the SLI to tri-SLI jump yields the biggest FPS gain, if Left 4 Dead is your game you're better off just getting one GTX 285, both SLI configurations hit a FPS wall at ~ 100FPS while a single card pumps out about 130 FPS, weird, probably an issue with that game's SLI compatibility...
