change the 6600gt to a MSI NX6600GT 128mb and your all setyou'll get around. 8600-8700 in 3dmark03. wait that PSU wont eb all that good, usually PSU's that come with cases arent all that great. try gettinga case without a PSU and then the Alien-x aspire 500w. its a very nice psu and will handle o/c plus SLI no problem at all + 4 fans, 2 cold cathode lights, and anything else u can think of

ok well get the MSI 6600gt anyway. since the board is MSI if you get the MSI NX6600GT they are much better together and you'll see better performance, plus looks spiffy and is cool and i havent seen any problems except when i under powered it

the blueline series offer the lowest latency in the price range at the lowest price

western digitals just fail alot, most of them dont even last for 6 months - go with a maxtor/quantum, hitachi, samsung, or seagate.
