Damn, nice man. I wish I had my second 4850, but i'm not working at the moment. I think the 680 Watt will be plenty for that setup. However, when its Apevia, it scares me.

I believe Canadians received some sort of tax return?

OK back to a productive topic, I think the cooling and power supply should be fine.

Yeah I am Canadian as well. We don't even get our T4 slips until February or March. Then it takes 2 weeks to get our tax return.

i would love to supply those...but i don't know what programs to use LOL...if you suggest a couple...i'll gladly run them

Also, as for cooling...does anyone know of any effective way to get more cooling air around the cards...like i don't want anything complicated...something simple but that will give more cooling directly to the cards..

i think the best way is to switch the HSF of the card.
