    Looks like a good balance of components to me. Out of curiosity what power supply was you considering for the build?

    For a single "SAPPHIRE HD 7970 3GB GDDR5", you will need at least a 550W PSU.

    Are you going to be using an aftermarket CPU cooler with this?

    BTW, looks like a great build.

    They look good to me but hang tight for a few days and let others have a chance to look them over.

    They are both great cards.

    I'm a GeForce guy myself but then I personally don't have anything against Radeon either.
