Hello everyone. I wanted to thank everyone from my previous thread for helping me out, especially the "jeep avatar" guy. Thanks man! But the thread is very long now and confusing. Anyway I have a final parts list and just want to be 100% sure all these parts are compatible - as I changed a few things due to combo deals.
XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9

Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive newegg
COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail newegg
GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Core i5 750 Processor Boxed
EarthWatts 650 Watt ATX 12V Power Supply

Ok so as far as parts go everything will be through newegg except the last two parts the i5 at my local microcenter is only 149.99 and the PSU is also cheaper there.

With all parts + newegg shipping and microcenter taxes it comes to roughly $703.95 - I also got windows 7 full version for 29.99 through my student discount. So total build roughly $730.00.....

I just wanted to make sure this case and psu will work together - due to having changed the HDD and case from my previous build. Will a coolmaster case properly fit an Antec PSU?

Thanks guys, purchasing tomorrow as long as it's all in the clear.

And for reference if anyone needs a link to my previous post.

Everything's compatible, however I noticed that in your other post you stated that you wished to crossfire in the future, but neither your mobo nor your psu would support it.

Here's some that would
Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC

GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD4 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel

or a non micro-atx one (since you listed an atx case)
ASUS P7P55D PRO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel

I could be wrong, but should he not look into ram with a lower cas latency? (that set is 9) - I am wondering, no recommending.
