That power supply should be good for that system. That case looks really nice but according to dimitry it feels a little cheap, decent case but not exceptional for the price however I really like the looks.

Nice I'm a big fan of asrock but some people think they are an offbrand and don't make good stuff however they are good quality and definately worth the buy.

no dont do that i tried it for a while, and for the heat and noise produced the benefit is well shite and for about 30 bucks more a card you can get more power and performance with just 2 six pins so go for 6950s.
