The above link is to the Tiered Power Supply listing. You need to pick something from Tier 3 or above. The only thing not on there is the VX series from Corsair. They are newer than the list, but would belong in Tier 3. You will also note that all power supplies from Rosewill are in Tier 5(NOT RECOMMENDED).

I would also check the ASUS memory compatibility list for that MB to make sure the A-Data will work. I do not recall seeing it on an ASUS list before.

Everything else looks great.

Just a side note, unless you plan on ever using 2 videocards on this system, you do not really need an SLI mobo. Other than that, this looks like a solid system.
