Exactly. The 960 is nothing but a 920 with a faster clock speed, the 920 can be just as stable at that speed and beyond.

Would have been much smarter to get a 920 or even an i5 and better video cards. GPU's are everything with a gaming computer. I would have gone i5 with 2 5850's

I don't know what the stock PSU is in the Cooler Master Gladiator 600, but I doubt it would be able to deal with two 5850's.

He missed the only part that could fry his computer at any second. Always, and I mean ALWAYS, get a good PSU. Any PSU that comes with a case is not worth keeping.

With a few exceptions, I've seen some Antec cases go with decent power supplies.
