    Hey man,I don't really know to much on the best hardware as i haven't been keeping up lately.But that list looks pretty damn sweet.1000w PSU i didn't ven know they had them that high i've seen up to about 600w maybe 650 but 1000!The GFX card and RAM look more then excellent sounds like it should be a real beast of a system.

    G'dang! I'm running a 600 right here and the lights dim when I kick it on...That one will surely require it's own circuit.

    Exclamation Links to stuff

    well heres the power booster,

    1,vga power supply
    2,1000w PSU

    basicly what the booster is their for is to supply power directly to the quad vid cards or duel, and take some of the burden off the psu for video processing, from what iv read,

    Wow, so the booster is the power supply for the video cards? Make sense. BUt with 1000watts, and the 300 booster, are you not afraid of fire?

    The Shadow is not afraid.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Exclamation iv only had 1 fire

    lol i know its overkill but im thinking of future upgrades to Quad SLI, plus you all know i only had 1 PC Fire and that was due to faulty ram,

    lol but form that fire i built the Beast, it's defualt was 1533 mhz, its running at 2.8ghz and its only got ddr 333,

    so like a pheonix my new rig over shadows my A64 1000x i cant get that ppiece of poop past 10 mhz oc, thats why i gettin new ram and new power supply,
