Running my shopping list here before I hit "Buy"

Plz let me know if you see any problems with this list (Yes I am on a budget)

Basically -
i7 860 -
4gb (2x2) DDR3 1600 RAM -
Asus ATX P55 Mobo -
Full Tower Case -

I have and all the essentials (GTX 260 gfx card, HDD, DVD drives)
I use my PC for 3D & audio/video/image processing, also some gaming.

Also will my Rosewill 550w supply be strong enough? Im not planning to OC or SLI.

Thank you.

^ Good list...
But some changes to save good money...
Get this RAM + Mobo combo...
1. GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3 + 2. CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Same feature mobo as that ASUS and the RAM has better timings...

CASE - I know its more of personal preference but do take a look at this case...

Wow awesome find on the combo! Thank you very much.

That case is rather sexy. My main concern was space... my gtx 260 is a beast. You think It'll be fine?
