Your ram will not work, you need DDR3 Ram, the ram you linked is DDR 2, you need something like this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=186_912&products_id=18602

Edit: The hard drive you linked is also incorrect, as its a laptop hard disk. You want something like this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=210_344&products_id=16679 Also, your PSU is a bit overkill unless you plan on SLI'ing your GTX570 down the road.

I do question on several parts.

For example, why AX1200 in the first place? Don't just follow manufacturers' suggestion. Their suggestions are often inflated to ensure highest compatibilities. From where I see it you only need at max 800 W PSU. A 800 W PSU is enough for future 2-way SLI configuration. Also running a very high rated PSU with low power load will makes it inefficient (waste electricity).

For sound card just get the regular Titanium HD. FATAL1TY comes with extra RAM which is useless.

You need a DDR3 RAM. Get a 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3 dual channel kit.

You really don't need the top of the line HDD (not that they'll boost the speed significantly). Just get a regular Caviar Blue to save some money. Or maybe consider getting a SSD. Do get 3.5 inches HDD, 2.5 inches is for laptop and has lower performance than 3.5 inches.

Legends thanks heaps.

The PSU was recommended by a friend. He said the PSU is usually the first thing to fail so he recommended a top of the line one. Not worth it?

I just noticed that the HDD was for a laptop after i posted haha.

I was either going to SLI my 570 or replace it with a 590 down the road, what would you recommend?
If i ran the 590 would a 800W PSU suffice?

Will change up the RAM as well.

Cheers mates.

Edit: also i looked at the titanium HD compared to the Fatality one and its more expensive, but if the Fatality has more RAM compared to the regular titanium HD why is it cheaper???

The PSU isnt bad, in fact its a very good unit. The problem lies in the fact that it would be extra money spent on something that isnt entirely necessary. This unit should do for a GTX590 should you choose to upgrade. http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15_354&products_id=15251

Cheers, all of that has dropped the price by about $300 which i'm very happy about.
One other thing i was curious about, will the Case come with an internet plug or do i need to purchase one as well?

If you use a wired connection, you have a port that is located on the Input/Output panel of your motherboard. If you use a wireless connection, you will need to purchase a wireless adaptor. Im assuming that you already have an internet connection via a modem, or router.

Ahh ok cool.

Yeh i am thinking of the wireless option as my modems/router isnt in a very good position relative to where my PC will be.
