Nintendo has the best consoles. This is truth.

I really hope Nintendo gets it together soon. (Also - First time posting on teh gamespots in probably 7 years - great to be back!) As far as what they're going to do next, I really hope its something conventional so I can go back to my N64/Gamecube days and get a similar experience.
Alright guys, here's the deal... I would like to build a core i7 system...
Here's my current rigs:
Asus Laptop: T5450 @ 1.66 ghz, Nvidia 9500m GS 512 MB Video Card, 250gb hard drive, 3GB ram (Dual Channel)((Running WIN Vista)
Rig 1: AMD 64 2800+ CPU (754 socket), x800 Pro 256MB, 1 GB Ram (Single Channel), 250gb hard drive ((Running WIN XP))
Rig 2: E7300 @ 2.66 ghz, Radeon HD 4670 512 MB, 4GB Ram Dual Channel, 320 GB Hard Drive ((Running WIN 7 x64))
Here's the rig i am planning on building...
XFX HD-489A-ZDFC Radeon HD 4890 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 Video Card - $200 (( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150359 ))
G. Skill Trident Memory (6 x 2 GB) = 12GB Ram TRIPLE CHANNEL - $300 for 6 sticks (Will having 6 sticks still run in triple channel? Stupid question - i know...but im curious) = $300 (( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231254 ))
ASrock A58 Deluxe Mobo - $220 (Most i've EVER even dreamed of paying for a mobo lol) (( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157155 ))
Core i7 920 Nehalem @ 2.66 GhZ - $280 ( (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115202 ))
1 TB Hard Drive - $90
What is a good power supply for this setup here? I would like to overclock the computer to at least 3.33GhZ (Same frequency as the extreme)
Also...relatively new at overclocking that much (i would do 100mhz here and there to dink around)...so please let me know what fan i should be using.
Fan... Under $70
PSU... Under $120
Willing to stretch the price range if its THAT much of a difference.
I do want to have four computers in my house that will all run counter strike: source.
for the future, wouldnt buying a ddr3/core i7 make more senese?
i also have a laptop with 3gb of ram and a 9500m in it, intel core 2 duo.
Not really too gungho on buying a $600 video card or $1000+ SLI/Crossfire video card system yet...i'd like to have the next gen DX11 cards out.
Anyway, here's the build:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146025 - nice looking case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148411 - 1 TB Hard Drive (Seagate Barracuda)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102826 - Radeon HD 4870 2 GB (did a little research, so im not quite sure if this one or the nvidia counterpart is better...weigh in...same price range $200 for a video card on this machine)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005- Corsair i7 power supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227408 - OCZ Flex EX Series 6 GB DDR3 1600 Triple Channel Memory
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813186170 - FoxConn MotherboardLGA 1366
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115202 - Core i7 920 Nehalem
I understand that I am paying a LOT for the core i7 setup...i would like to know if you think it is worth it (Or should i spend the money elsewhere...perhaps on more memory on a 775 chip. Right now the computer im running has...
E7300 Dual Core@ 2.66 ghz
4GB Dual Channel Ram DDR2 PC2-6400 (G. Skill)
ATi Radeon HD 4670 512MB
For the same price range (willing to stretch a little ways)what would you do if you were buying a new rig...also, do you think the rig i currently have is fine?
