More about check build please
  1. yes it will all work .

    You could save some money on the RAM . Low latency 1333 MHz is just as fast . Look at the Phenom memory scaling article on TOMs .

    The 850 watt psu is over kill .
    650 for a single fgfx card is plenty , MAYBE 750w if you want to add a second card .

    Very expensive mb . Does it actually have features you need? If not then there are better options in terms of bang per buck
  2. 850w if you plan on CF later.

    rest os OK, good rig.
  3. Switch to this ram, you wont get any noticeable benefit out of 1800MHz ram, even the difference between 1066 and 1600MHz DDR3 is at most 3% based on a recent article on here
