I am more worried about quality compared to saving a few dollars... I also want this thing running very cool.

I am looking for people to let me know if they see a problem with this setup, like making sure everything will fit and all of it is compatible with each other.

I am pretty sure i want these parts, but i am open to people's opinion.

I don't have a lot of money to work with but i got enough to work with.

Here are the parts (i've already bought the power supply and 4GB of the ram because i got them on sale).

Do you plan on crossfire? Is that why you have the 750W psu?

Here are three changes you should make, and rather than tell you why, I'll supply the appropriate reference:

+1 Well said! Couldn't have said it any better. :D 

I recommend a Corsair 750TX or a PC Power 750 if doing CrossFire. Else a Corsair 650TX.The Corsair/PC Power/Antec(some models) are very dependable and good quality than any Termaltake PSUs.
