    Well. Only thing to come to my mind, don't waste your money and the quality you get for the money on SLI, if you're not exactly sure you will get another GFX within a year or so.

    EDIT: Cheaper, and I think better RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145194
    By raw specs(dbl the cache mem.) better HDD cheaper: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152134
    If you like LEDs, here's a PSU with exactly same amperages @ 12V: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341002 (same price too)

    EDIT#2: Which is cooler, TT Armor, or Antec 1200? Your decicion. 1200's a bit more expensive, but has free shipping. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129043
    Then there's also the 900. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129021 It's cheaper, and quite much equally good-looking. It's a bit smaller. Mid tower. Almost full tower still.
