wow that is one hell of a deal for mobo and ram.

I wouldn't get that drive, Seagates have problems. Look at the WD Caviar Black 640gb or the 1TB if you can afford it, they are very reliable and fast.

You could go with a 650tx for that system, 750w isn't necessary. If you wanted to SLI later, then I would look at a 850w PSU like the 850tx. If you don't care about the color of the PSU, you could get a 750w PCP&C for the same price as the 650tx. A 750w PSU would work, but you would be running it at lower efficiency and have less headroom.

That is a good case, Look at the CM 690 for a cheaper solution, its wider than the 900 so you can fit a bigger CPU cooler and has excellent cooling.
