get a corsair, antec or PCP&C PSU, and you'll only need 750w.

I would recommend either an Antec 902 or Cooler Master HAF922 for cases.
^+1 helloworld_98 on the PSU recommendations.
I don't think you really need 2000MHz RAM. You will be better suited with OCZ Platinum 1600 MHz and for the price difference you can upgrade to 12GB, which will help with your CG work.

High speed RAM is very overrated. The performance increase you'd see is marginal, and is often compensated by lower timings in lower-clocked RAM (lower timings = lower latency in RAM = faster RAM).
Take a look at this:
What Tecmo34 is saying is that 1600mhz is plenty fast for your needs, and the money saved could be spent to increase the performance of your machine more than a few hundred mhz could.
If you plan to SLI, you'd be fine with this PSU:
Although the 750w version (by Corsair or PCP&C) should be enough for the GTX 275 SLI. I *know* that it's enough for a 4890 SLI, and I think the 4890 consumes more or less the same amount as the 275s...
