Meh, though I have also heard its a good board, I have my doubts, seeing as the "Thermal Armor" Could potentially trap heat and kill the life of the board faster. But it still may be a good board.

I would get 2 560Ti's though instead of 550's.
The HAF 2600k

i would ditch the sabertooth for a pro or deluxe. sabertooth cost more with little to show for it.
also with those 560ti's you could get by on a quality 700w, but I would still get the 750 or higher for the extra headroom and possible future upgrades.

If your a patient person, and obssesivly look at newegg open box video cards, you might catch a great deal on a couple 560ti's. they go for $183 open box sometimes. You might even be able to get a couple 570's if you hold off until you can find some. Only problem with that is you really have to check newegg open box like every 5 minutes. They sell very quick.

But 750w would be plenty for either set of cards. Im running 2 overclocked 570's and my 2600k overclocked with no problems. And I fold on all 3 at the same time. Of course my psu gets a little hot when doing so, but it is well within limits.

edit: also, I would stay away from coolermaster as far as psu's go. Stick with corsair, antec, or seasonic. There are some other decent brands out there too, but the three I mentioned are probably the top 3 as far as reliability and performance.

If you want 850W this one is good. I dont think you will need 1000W.
