I see your pimping that PSU now:D
The PCP&C psu is solid one of the best you can buy.
I have done some work on a clear case like that and dear god dont touch the inside of the case without wearing gloves. In time you will see every smudge and fingerprint as dust settles on it.

And Welcome to the forums man hang around.:D
Heh.... I saw 2X 8800GTX and alarm bells went off....... :)

What did you decide on for a PS?

Be sure to post a pic or two when you get everything up and running.

Sick
You'll be very happy with that PSU, got a MM I'd like to see how the rails are with a decent power hungry rig, see how little it flux's.



You know I want to kill you and take your rig right?:D

Sweet!!!!

Yeah, you won't need another PSU until the next major spec change (like the change from the 5 & 3v lines needing the most juice).

The other benefit is that a strong PSU doesn't need to produce as much heat to do the work.

Default Update and pics

Well im now ready to toss on an OS...wish Vista 64 was out :(

Things i have left to do are:

Install Hard Drive cooler
Install the 8" x 8" x 19" Arcylic air chamber (mount the pump and rad inside)
Swap the PSU with a PCpower 1000 watter (on order)
Install the other 2gig or ram (on order)
Install the 2nd 8800 (on order)
Swap the side Arcylic cover with a UV one (Dragon etched)
install the TripleHead2go (on order)
Buy three 19"Lcd's for the TripleHead2go
(need to find monitors with the smallest possible edges)
*Maybe* add a Bigfoot Networks Killer Gaming Nic
*Maybe* add a X-Fi Xtreme Gamer sound card

Anyways here are a few pics
