Yeah its overkill on the PSU A bit, but the 1KW was on a brief sale for less than the 850 Ultra X3, so I figured why not right?

Looks like only 4 pictures are showing for me right now at work , so maybe site is having a bad day lol!

@SS - nahhh he's been really good to my stuff so I'll treat his nice.

So Tally is:

Ultra X3 - 199.99
XFX 4870 - 214.99 (After MIR from Tiger)
4GB Corsair XMS3 - 98.99
Gigabyte Board - 204.99
Phenom II 955 - 276.99 (Infonec - Sale)
WD Black - 56.99 (One Day Sale, Infonec)
Lite-On OEM DVD - 15.99
CM Scout - 119.99
ZEROTherm NV-120 69.99

Total: 1258.91

Its in i7 Territory for End Cost , however he wanted AMD, and he got the highest End one there was.

Nice Soul.....as for the PSU..imo, better to go overkill then too "light"...sucks having to replace a PSU everytime you decide to upgrade....buy once save big in the end!!

Ick - Ultra :puke:

Otherwise slick looking build
Wish I had that kind of relationship with my delivery driver. Would help greatly in not having to drive to another city to pickup my parcels every time

To each their own FiXT , I prefer them as they have yet to do me wrong.
And they deliver nice clean power for my rigs.

RJ- Exactally. At least this way he is X-Fire Ready , or even Tri-Fire Ready should it happen.

Ah well, it does the job very well with excellent stability.
For me and all my systems.
