Hey! everything looks good. the only thing i would change out just to be safe is the psu. plus this one is modular which will save you alot of space in that mid case!!

Also if possible get some G.Skill Ram, stuff is great!

Go for the HX 650 instead to save some moolah, if you are just gonna be doin 1 card.

Theres nth you can do wrong with a build like that, but rmb to get the optical drive if you need it lol.

BTW, I have mentioned this quite a few times.
Do not buy a 6950 expecting it to unlock to 6970- as nowadays, many 6950s won't, even the ref ones. Instead, buy a a 6950 expecting 6950 perf, hoping it can unlock to 6970.

I would go for a 570 over the 6950 if you can, it will be better as well. Even better, go for a 6970 (a 2Gb 570 with CFX performance that beats/matches 580 SLI)

The Corsair unit recommended earlier is fine, but entirely overkill for your system; 35A/550W is more like it.

yeah thx, couldn't decide for 570 or 6950, but since i only have 1 monitor i should go with 570.

I think the 570's are looking really good at the mo, if you're wanting a bigger screen then the vmem would be helpful, if so you can pick up the 2.5gb 570, for just a little more too?

The 750w recommended above was a really good choice when i first got my own psu, it saw me through SLi 8800GTX, and then to a single 285 (multiple parts inbetween) and it will still stand up to sli 560ti's and dare say 570's (vanilla's ofc)

Good choices all round to OP, Corsair for future upgrade path?

As I said, it's a fine choice; doesn't change the fact that it's entirely overkill for his current system.
