You don't need a 1000W PSU, you could probably get by with a good 650-750W.

Also, why crossfire 2 of those cards when you could get an awesome single card, then have room for another when the time comes?

Finally, I would go sandybridge on this, as for the price of the crosshair and CPU you could probably squeeze in a 2600k...

post your thoughts
first off say no to that psu...and u dont need 1000watt psu...just get a corsair tx750 psu or antec tp series psu.....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-021-_-Product tx750....although for ur rig even a tx650 will be sufficient....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-025-_-Product tp 750

secondly instead of 2 hd6850's get a gtx570/single hd6950 unlock to hd6970( although some cards might not unlock) and save ur other pci slot for future cfx....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127582 570 msi twin frozr 3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127575 hd6950--twin frozr 3
this hd6950 is non reference model so the chances of it being unlocked to hd 6970 r null
so the performace tree is something like this....
hd6970>=gtx570>hd6950......so now it depends on ur choice...and finally i would like to say that its always better to take single powerfull card instead of 2 weaker cards as it saves u the problems like incompatiblity ,scaling,microstutter,driver problems ,custom profiles etc....

thirdly for that same money or probably less u can get an i5 2500k which will demolish x6 in terms of performance....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-Product--asus sabretooth mobo(change acc to ur choice..)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-072-_-Product i5 2500k....
overall a few dollars less than ur earlier cpu-mobo build,still giving u greater performance.....

fourthly instead of corsair xms 3 u r with getting gskill ripjaws memory sticks.....
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231314

and finally use all the saved up money for buying a better case like haf 912/922 r mid tower but pretty nice ones or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=nzxt%20m59 m59.......although this depends on everybody's taste....

so i hope i helped.....

Sorry, but I agree with Ghost Z.

Also, that is a nice case, but you can do better for the same price (unless you are stuck on the styling as cases are personal): Lian Li K-62

sabretooth is better option for ocing and such...
he does not need 2 of those beasts even 1 will suffice and fit his budget...
he needs 8gb ram and vengeance r overpriced...the performance diff is minimal over xms3/ripjaws...
even a tx650 will suffice for his rig
his wd hdd is sata 3 6gb/s...and spinpoint is sata2

oh if thats the case....
did u buy from newegg...if yes they have a 30 days return policy if u r within that timeframe i suggest u send those items back and build new i5 rig...
in case u r out of that time period then dont worry ur rig is still very powerfull and serve u well for at least 3 years to come....

but vengeance & ripjawsX work best with sandy bridge because they have lower voltage,
it works even better than xms3,ripjaws,dominator,trident
