    Default Ultra X3 Still Enough?

    I am about to build a new system and i want to make sure the Ultra X3 will still be able to handle the load. I am pretty confident it will, but I just want to make sure there are no new requirements.
    Here is the new system;

    MB Asus RE2
    CPU intel I7 965EE
    VC's 2x280 GTX SLI
    RAM 12GB Corsair Dominator
    HDD's 2xWD VR 300, 3 Segate 500GB's RAID with XFX Sata card
    and the miscellaneous H20 cooling, LG BLU-Ray....

    TIA for your input.

    RAM 12GB Corsair Dominator 1600
    MB ASUS RE2
    VC EVGA 2x280 GTX H20 cooled AquagraFX
    HDD's 2xWD VR 300 RAID 0 - 2 WD Black 1 TB RAID 1
    PSU Silverstone ZM 1200
    DVD LG Blu-Ray HDVD Burner
    Samsung 305T+
    MacBook Pro 17"

    I bought this one in April of 2007 and it is the SLI modular version.

    It replaced the leaf blower PC P&C 1KW.

    I just like to find a reason to replace as much as I can. I truly love overkill.

    If I could have justified the Skulltrail MB I would have gone in that direction, unfortunately the memory drawback killed that idea.
