For that kind of set up, I suggest go with a quality power supply. Coolermaster do not make good power supply. Go for quality like Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone and XFX. All in all I think your ready to go!

1000W is way to overkill for that setup, go for a 650-750W PSU.

Things may change which is why I went 1000W

Another vid might be needed & I may venture into some better cooling after winter.

You can run 2 6970's on a corsair AX 850 with liquid cooling and everything. Personally I would get the AX 850. Pick up the i7 2600k and change your 6970 to a gtx 580 then you will be set for upgrades.

Agree all all. I would also drop the sound card (onboard sound is good enough for 99% of people now). Take the extra money and pocket it, or upgrade to a larger SSD.

Lol I'm only keeping this card til the 7000 series show up. I'm doing the eyefinity setup hence the 3 monitors & the GTX 580 is only capable to run 3 in SLI which would cost me even more. I always go overboard with psu for obvious reasons. This setup will also be hooked to my 70" for the odd movies. Not that the psu has anything to do with that ;).

Understood on the 6970 vice 580, but I would take a corsair 850w over a 1000w coolermaster regardless of what load was going to be put on it.
