Well, it makes complete sense the way you say it, Toss.

But I've wanted the new PSU so long. Here it is, if you didn't guess which one: SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W. It is awesome! (I've got 13 reviews bookmarked if you want 'em.)

But my existing system could use it already. You see, I lucked out that my Corsair 620HX PSU has worked from day one with a GTX295. But it shouldn't get as hot as it does. So I've needed the SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W, for 13 months now. Call it for safety-sake. And with five Hard Drives and even a Dual TV Card for a while, it has been a real stretch. Is that luck or what? (A 620 Watt PSU powering a GTX295 and five HDDs and an OCed CPU, for 13 months now. For three months it included a Duel TV Card too. But that's what you get when you buy the best. It was originally for an 8800GTX.)

Noise wise, Corsair's HAF-932 case has the best fans. And they should be quiet enough. I want the relief that a cool system will bring and I don't care about noise, if there's any. See, with two and three systems running at once you'd never notice because they cancel each other out.

I see you have an i7 up to 4.0GHz! w00t! Congrats Toss!

I know the Corsair's HAF-932 case is the way to go no matter what the CPU or how it's clocked. Cooling never hurt anything. And I can hear right now, the GTX480 I'm going to get, saying, "Put me in an HAF930" And, "I want a SeaSonic X750 PSU".
Your's is going to be a great system for sure, but you need to remember that not everyone has the components to properly house a GTX 480. I'd get one if it weren't for the 5850s and their great price. Two for the price of one GTX 480 is just too great a deal to pass up.

CF 5850s also won't require a new PSU.

4.0Ghz on an i7 on water is not really that great, but as I have a C0 revision it won't post on anything higher than that without having to go over 1.4V.
