    Just out of interest, why did you pick an Enterprise class hard drive and why a 750W PSU?

    Even if you went crossfire I can't imagine you'd need that kind of power.

    I just wanted to be on the safe side in terms of power in case I want to go crossfire later.
    Guess I can dial it down a bit.
    The Hard Drive was a model that based on what I looked, has the least amount of bad reviews in terms of reliability.

    Fair enough, yeah the enterprise class will generally have better reliability.

    I think even with crossfire it might be a bit on the large side - I mainly commented because I bought an HX620 and now suspect that I probably went overboard, even if I got a 4870 X2 I doubt I would need so much power.
