Buy a case without a PSU and buy one separately. PSUs that come with cases are unreliable. Also, I don't think 420W is enough for your computer.

You're going to need at least a 500 to 600W power supply if you plan on running in SLI

If you are planning on SLI, your two video cards need to match. Either two 9800 GX2 or two 9600 GT.

doesnt a single 9800GX2 outperform 2 9600GT?
as for the psu, i would either recommend getting one in store, or a different online retailer since cyberpowerpc.com dont have bigger ones.

Definitely, as a 9800GX2 is similar to two 9800GTXs in SLI.

Ditch the 680i motherboard and go with a P35 one.

The 650W Thermaltake will be enough for the 9800GX2.

What does a VGA Power Supply do then, if i get the 420W case which if i order of cyberpowerpc i have to get 420W, all there cases have 420 or 350W.
