At least thats what I was thinking I'm no expert thats for sure.

PS would a 750W PSU be enough for a dual gtx 460 system?

PSS those Mushkins are CAS 6 Latency, is there another reason you don't like them?

750W are more then enough for two GTX 460 in SLI. You'll have plenty of headroom left. You'll only need 1000w+ PSU's if your going for a GTX 480 SLI configuration.

As for the Mushkins, you are right. My mistake looked at another kit that was CAS 9. I still have a preference for G. SKILL, just because I always use them (on more then 30 builds) and never had any problems with the PI series. I guess Mushkin will be just as good, just haven't used them yet...

Have fun, looks like a great build...
