Anybody got any knowledge on the COOLERMASTER UCP 1100w PSU or any of the other PSUs i mentioned in the earlier posts? because i went ahead and emailed the store i will most likely buy the parts from and asked what kind of deals they would do if i ordered this list of parts:

-THERMALTAKING V9 Case
-ASUS P5Q-PRO MotherBoard
-Core2QUAD Q9550 CPU
-ATI Radeon 2gb HD4870x2 Graphics Card

You're honestly better off with the HX1000 or Quattro.

That Zalman only has 18A on the 12v rail, the Quattro 25A and the HX 40A.

Thanks I was just exploring other options and thought I would ask here first before I made anymore decisions

Just to chime in, I have a GA-EP35-DS3P and it is a great board but any of those you mentioned in the GA- series will work very well.

With those boards though, don't they run one PCIe x16 but the other PCIe runs at x4? That would be a huge bottleneck if i were to run crossfire, the Asus P5Q-PRO run PCIe at x16 with one card but with two it runs each card at x8 so that they are even.
