No, that is a bad deal.

1. PSU should be around the 600W mark so you do not need to replace it in the next few years, and so you can SLI since you are planning on getting 2 GFX cards.
2. Do NOT get 8500GT's, they are absolutely horrible cards and having 2 is even worse. How much did you want to spend on a GFX card(s)?

PLE... so you're in perth? If so, go to austins computers instead, so much better prices.

And 180 EACH is horrible, Austins for example, has 8500GT's at $70 each...

Do not get two cards now, get 1 9600Gt instead. Same price / cheaper (Austin has MSI ones for $145) and much faster

MSI ain't crap, it's an A-class brand.
And the PSU you have there is crap, certainly not good enough for that system.

You call MSI a crappy brand then ask me if i know what i'm talking about? You are clearly very knowledgeable about these things, so why ask advice here then?

huh? so if you do not want any additional performance, why get 2 cards? He was saying that if you want to actually be able to tell the difference between 1 card adn two, you need a big monitor.

Yea and some people say Asus is a bad brand with lots of DOA's. It depends on how you receive them and from where they came from.

So go back and read them again. They might as well be set in stone; you can read them over and over again at your leisure.

I think you need to either start listening to us or not bother posting again. You're just wasting your own and everyone elses time by asking for help then turning around and ignoring it.

On another note, that mobo stinks.
It's micro-atx and has only one pci-e slot.
I don't know if you're going SLI but if you do you need an nForce 6/7 board.
