Looks good. DX 9 is the way to go. Great Price. BTW, you running a intel now? will that PSU work with a AMD? and SATA? 450 is kinda on the low side for these new GPU's

nah, unless you are thinking of oc'ing, but with that stock clock speed, i don't see why you would.

Quick question for you guru's. With the Gigabyte mobo GA-MA790GPT-UD3H , I plan on running crossfire by this summer. Now here's the question, will this support crossfire x 16, or will it be crossfire at x 8. I've researched and haven't found a direct answer.

Cheers :scara:

edit:

I just ordered a Lian LI Case to throw all this new stuff into! I'm very excited!
