You only need 600Watt for Xfire so you can save some money there. The XFX 650 should be a little cheaper. I would also recommend upping the graphics card to a 560ti or a 6950.

I would go for a samsung spinpoint in place of the WD blue also.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TBhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152185 $59.99

1TB seagate 7200rpm 32mb slightly used $40. If I needed more storage I think I'd be looking at these. -> http://www.overclock.net/other-compo...te-7200-a.html

Oops, nevermind, someone already got them all. Sorry bout that.

I agree with andrewmchugh, a 600-650w PSU will be enough for that rig, if you plan to use a single video card. As long as you pick one from this list you'll be OK, tho that 750w is pretty cheap. But this XFX PSU is 49.99 after rebate, high quality, and way cheaper.

Mobo is pretty good, i have actually chosen it for my BD build. Cheap, nice feature set, 2x SLI/CF, support for power-hungry CPU's.

The 955 is a nice CPU. You might wanna pair it with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, the step up of the mighty Hyper 212+, and it's even a couple bucks cheaper.

I'd also pick a 6870. It is not that expensive over a 6850, also has a rebate, and you get better performance. Another option would be a better cooled and silent 6870, like a MSI one.

For RAM, i recommend this kit. Cheaper than the one you are planning to buy, less voltage to run them, and same speed/timings.

HDD< i'd say do the jump, and for $10 more, get a 1 TB HDD. If you were gonna be happy with a 500 GB, you'll be able to get a lot of breathing room with a 1 TB HDD.
