This is very intense , wow, nice..

Your PSU can supply the watt it needs but I suggest a 850+ watt

Very nice machine

More folks trying to play the P67 dance I see. Drop that motherboard and get something based on Z68 if you really want to make it scream. Z68 is everything the P67/H67 should have been and more.

Also, the power supply as it stands is plenty - the GPU chosen isn't a power guzzler. You can even add another 560 Ti in SLI and still use the same power supply.

looks good to me, possibly an aftermarket heatsink/cooler? i have heard the stock intel heatsinks are not that good at exhausting heat but that is what i have heard and read, not from personal experience
