Are these the prices that you are paying?

I suggest you get the seasonic 1050 gold psu. Its on sale right now for like ~186

and form what i've heard/seen/read, you're better off getting a different mouse rather than the tron one. It looks cool, but thats about it.

logitech makes great mouses (g9x, g500, etc)

There is a lot I would change about what you selected. First is the case, for that money you can get 10x the case. Same thing with your Antec CPU cooler. There are tons of air coolers that put that to shame. Thermalright Silver Arrow, Noctua D-14 and the new Phantek's cooler all beat out any of the "sealed water loops" and cost the same or less than. The Arctic Silver TIM is also junk, there are better TIM's for the same price that don't have a 200 hour "cure time". Your hard drive is a good one, but the SSD is a poor choice. Look to the Crucial M4 or Samsung 830 with the Crucial M4's being the end all be all SSD at this current time. The motherboard you selected is a good one.

You could save yourself a ton of money if you have a microcenter by you, They have the i5 2500k CPU for $179.99 and when you buy the CPU you get $50 bucks off ANY 1155 socket motherboard.

That EVGA Superclocked card is a good one too. EVGA make's some great GPU's.

Then there is that PSU, its almost twice what you need. You could run SLI 570's off of a 750w PSU, 850W if you want some headroom, but 1000w is no needed for ANY single GPU set up.

My personal opinion is to do some more research, A LOT more. You could shave alot of money off of your current parts list just by selecting better hardware for your usage. With the amount of money your going to spend on your hardware list you could build one epic rig, just gatta do more reading here on OCN.net. Good luck!

Consider getting a 7950 or a 580 if you want to play on ultra or some of the settings on ultra for smoother gameplay. When you will play Conquest Large and everything blows around you like 2-3 tanks and a chopper + lots of infantry you will drop below 30 fps with a 570.
