Mobo - You can check out this one too - ASRock X58 Extreme... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 2. RAM - A cheaper one but by no means a lower quality one - Crucial 6GB - Don't be fooled by the given speed and timings...It can easily be overclock to 1600MHz with CAS 8...Check its reviews in newegg and here at TOMS... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 3. Definitely the PSU - You wont need 1000W IMO... For HD 5870 crossfire, this 850W would do just fine...And actually will be better than that 1000W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... If you want a modular one - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi... Thermal grease - These unlike AS 5 need no curring time and are electrically non-conductive... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi... CASE - For that price, might as well check out this case too... CM Stacker - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
