It's not fully modular, but it's a great brand. Certainly better than the EA-650 excepting the wattage difference. Only a marginal price increase, too. --- Don't trust the smiling penguin! http://backloggery.com/mydogskip93
Well I made more adjustments, also see my questions above in post 9. --- Bless all forms of intelligence.

From: darth_star | #009 Not fully modular (since I am a noob I do not know what that fully means), how so? And 620w is still good enough for the SLI 670s?
620W ought to be alright if you don't OC that much or add lots of fans, expansion cards, etc. Fully modular means every single cable can be removed from the casing. It's not really an issue, and it looks like all the cables permanently attached to the PSU you picked will be used, anyway. It appears that only the main power connector, the CPU power, and one PCIe connector are in the permanent bundle. --- Don't trust the smiling penguin! http://backloggery.com/mydogskip93
EDIT: So how is the build looking right now? My concerns art still regarding SLI, the cheapness of the MotherBoard (I heard somewhere that if there is one thing not to skimp out on its the MotherBoard), if the PSU wilt be enough wattage, and the other concerns I listed in original post.
Also if I stop responding then I am likely asleep. --- Bless all forms of intelligence.

Still unbalanced build if anything. I know you have a high budget but you're still overpaying for thing you don't even need. You can still cut down while maintaining the same performance unless you're building for aesthetic color coordination or something.

The only things I would change at this point are the RAM and possibly the HDD. Everything else is a great buy. the 2500K is still viable, but the 3770K is certainly worth it. A Windforce 670 would be preferable to the FTW 670, but it's not a huge difference. Mostly little things. I don't see any real reason to call this build unbalanced or overpriced. --- Don't trust the smiling penguin! http://backloggery.com/mydogskip93
