PC power and Cooling on the QX6850
Corsair Q6600

OCZ's on the Other two Rigs.

My thoughts at least,

Doesn't matter IMO, use whatever you grab first when putting the PCs together.

I think you could sell off the PC Power & Cooling and get like a Corsair VX550 or PC Power & Cooling 510 Silencer since you don't need 1KW for sure.

Hehe. I assume the 620HX is the one you're buying from me tonight? :P

Seconded. Given those choices, I'd much prefer to have the GameXStreams on the lowest power rigs.
