Triple channel is no longer needed or recommended these dayas.

What case will you be using?
What's the likelihood of you being able to buy parts today?

I ask because there's an extremly good PSU that you should get in on as soon as you read this:
$90 - Seasonic X650 Gold 650W Modular PSU

Simply put, it's one of the best bang for the buck PSU deals out now.
