Thanks to all for their Two Cents. I've gone and ordered my X58 MB (EVGA 3x Sli) and an I7 930 (for 30 bucks less than the 920) I guess I'm "all in", and looking at a 1kw PSU and a couple gtx470's too. The HWC review today just reinforces my decision. I like the performance on the GTX470-SLI, looks like it will do well for me. Heat and power I could give 2 shakes about, my 2 8800GT's run plenty hot and take a 750w power supply as it is. The bleeding edge is always gonna be hot and power hungry, just ask Bill Clinton...
