    Hi and welcome to the forums, this section is for people with technical problems that need help fast. I think you would probably have better results posting in the hardware forum;
    https://forums.hexus.net/pc-hardware-components/
    and maybe in the case modding forum;
    https://forums.hexus.net/chassis-mods/

    And just a tip you may find people more helpful if you avoid text talk.

    nah dont. maybe a mod can move it?

    850w is overkill, especially for that cpu. antec 900 or p180 whichever you prefer. i ordered the 900 just because i like it , personal preference.

    8800GTS SLi completely & utterly pointless.

    Get a single GTX or Ultra.

    with dave, imo SLI/xFire is a waste, one newer card is always better than two older cards.... u might save a bit of money too...

    Just a bit of general advice, if you want to ensure a psu will be up to the job for a performance pc, you want AT LEAST 450-500W and 30A on the 12V rails. Otherwise if there is a psu that is the same wattage or even lower than other but seems too expensive there usually is a reason for this check the name of the manufacturer generally certain brands dictate the quality of the psu.

    p.s. used to love the 900 but more of an ammo 533/stacker/p 182 guy now.
