- Get a good 550W PSU and you'll be fine. I recommend the Antec TP-550, currently $54.99 after MIR on Newegg.com.
- I recommend against Corsair Dominator RAM, totally overpriced with nothing to show for it.
- For your SSD, I don't know what size you had in mind but look into Mushkin Callisto Deluxe, G.Skill Phoenix Pro or OCZ Vertex 2 drives. All are the same internally, but they vary in price... just get whichever is the cheapest in the size you want.

Corsair 850HX so u could sli that thing in the future and still have some room to spare on the psu, id get a WD Black 2TB for storage, and 2 pheonix pro SSD's in raid 0 for the OS.

dominators are overpriced and do nothing a good set of another brand can;t do. i recomend the gskill ripjaw's they are awsome, look great, and their tripple channel 6gb set is only like $140 now.

are the WD blacks more reliable than Greens? 10 Green drives have died on me at work and at home. all >500GB.

edit: switched to G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8T-6GBRM
