+1000, because everyone's thinking this right now, and giggling at the thought of twin 768mb 460's in a new build (in a $330 case) in August 2011))

It's still not too late to cancel your order and think this build through. NCIX weekly sale is up, let's help this guy out fer chrissakes.

the ocz power supply should be fine and support you for years to come the lower end of ocz can be crap but a 80+ gold psu means its efficiency is rather high at all load levels and it should be better then the antec 750 bronze. I do recommend if you have the money to go with a corsair, it might cost a bit more but i've never had any issues and for the most part corsair units are under rated power supplies that stand the test of time.

I would go with 1x 560 or a 570 if you can swing it. I would also change the SSD to a 60GB and a 1TB Black and set up the SSD as caching.
