I would ask you to stick with gtx580 since it'll give you peace of mind,else you can grab a much more powerful hd6990 for only $110 more,
evga gtx580 3gb $589
hd6990 $699
Hope this helps.

Yeh definately really helpfull has gave me somthing to look into this is why i love this site =]

Quite a few guys have reccomended the asus maximus IV extreme and im not seeing too much difference with MOBO above

I think an SSD is almost a must if you are looking at spending that much on a setup, it would be a shame not to have an SSD Boot Drive with all of your most used software, the Vertex 3 are possibly the ones to go for atm but the Corsair Force Series 3 also look interesting and will be released soon.

As for your motherboard, it's a great board I can certainly vouch for that, but its probably a little overkill if you dont plan to SLi/Xfire, you might be better loooking into the new Z68 boards as some people have been recommending.

Also the Corsair HX or AX PSU's are the ones I would personally go for, I've had a 650 and this 1000W HX Series and they have never missed a beat.

Finally, the cooler, you could probably get better performance for the same or less money as you would spend on a H70. The dual heatsink coolers are the best performing last time I checked. The Silver Arrow is absolutely superb.

Don't get that Watercooler... it's expensive and noisy...

Get Antec H20 620 for same performace... or the 920 for huge perf increase.

There is no doubt that asus maximusIV extreme is a great mobo but gigabyte z68x ud7 is currently the best sandy bridge mobo,the gigabyte mobo supports SSD caching which the asus dont,since you'll use a SSD,I highly recommend you the gigabyte z68x ud7
NOTE: Some of the best OC in recent times has been done in gigabyte mobos
