Building a new computer - here's what I have so far:

Case - Cooler Master haf 922

Hard drive - Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB

PSU - 750W Continuous@40°C (modular)

Mobo - Asus maximus III formula 1156

CPU - i5-750

RAM - g.skill Ripjaws 2 x 2GB 1600 7-8-7-24-2N

GPU - XFX Radeon 5850

CPU fan - cool master hyper 212 +
Open to any suggestions..or point out something I missed.

I will probably add another 5850 at some point
Don't need monitor/mouse/keyboard/speakers/cddvd-drive

Edit: Forgot cpu cooler
Edit: Changed PSU / RAM

650W might not be enough. I believe the 750W version is only $10-20 more anyway.

That motherboard is way more than you need. I highly recommend the Asus P7P55D-E Pro for $190.

Those sticks of RAM are decent buy for $16 more, you can get the Corsair XMS3 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 sticks that will be a lot faster.

Thanks for the quick replies

I picked the Formula III because I do plan to overclock and I have heard that it is a great board to do so

Also I'll change the Ram, thanks.
I saw that one haha wasn't sure about the mobo or case
