yeah you can tell by the color of his rep bar....

Yeah 1000w would be good for that system but honestly I would cut down those GPU's to 2 at most and that may be pushing it unless you have a 30" monitor and plan on maxing out crysis... If you are running a 24" or less there is no point whatsoever to have that many GPU's... I mean is there really a difference between 300 FPS and 500 FPS... It is such overkill for any game out there right now.. I mean look up some of the benchmarks for a single 280 and you will see that it pretty much crushes any games out right now so 2 will be a little overkill right now and three is just over doing it IMHO.... I'd save the extra money from that and get a SICK monitor that can handle even running the 2 280's for now....

You have a pretty sweet setup yourself, I'm working with a couple mod's to make a really good setup aswell as re-wiring my whole house for max performance. And I do plan on making a whole album for the whole job that were doing! Probably over a 100 pictures :P So I'll make a album on facebook or something if anyone has it or on MySpace or some webpage xD

Hey, don't go for the GTX 280. A Core 216 which is almost half the price of that card, performs nearly identical to it. You can save yourself a bunch of money and just replace two GTX 280's with two Core 216's.

I would ditch the WD Green and get a 300 GB Raptor, or some some Spinpoints/ WD blacks in Raid 0

and a Large third drive for storage.

And as said before your PSU is overkill, a 1K watt PSU will do.

and You GPU config is unnecessary. get a 295
