That does sound pretty amazing. Especially for someone as impatient as me.

If you plan on SLI in the future then this one is capable of SLI 570s and a OCd CPU without issue. - SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Yes, i am now a huge fan of Seasonic PSUs. Very well made.

I too agree, grab a SSD for the OS. I would at least get a 64-80GB and use it for just the OS and installed apps.
Put games and all other DATA on other drives. That will help a huge amount with the overall feel of things.
Will 750w be enough? I do want to SLI eventually. The Newegg PSU calculator said everything I want to eventually do will take around 825w.

If you are a gamer, you may also want to go even bigger like the 240GB Corsair Force 3...which is $199 from NewEgg with a $20 MIR. - Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F240GB3A-BK 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

I'm actually thinking of getting that SSD for my box and moving my 80GB intel to another machine. I'm down to about 25GB free on my 80GB with BF3 and now Diablo III installed.
I was thinking the 240GB one as well. I'm sure the 120GB will be enough for me, but I mine as well be sure.
