Ok so I've done some research and this is what I've come up with. I'm building a gaming pc (for modern games in 1080 resolution), and I'm in Canada so I'm using mainly

Basically I just want to make sure that all these parts will work together. If not, could you suggest something in the same price range? I'm all ready to order this, I just need confirmation that it will all work once I build it.

First of all, these are the parts that I already have and they CANNOT be changed. I had a previous thread and I don't think I was clear about that, as people suggested I change them. Again, these parts can't be changed:

PSU: Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan

HDD: Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 4.2MS 32MB 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM

Optical: Samsung SH-S223B/BEBE 22X DVD+-RW SATA DVD Writer Black OEM

Monitor: ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers

Now, here's what I have yet to order:

Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Mobo/CPU: i5 750 and Asus p7p55d-Pro

GPU: XFX HD-585X-ZAFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity

RAM: G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBECO

Also, I want to eventually get a second 5850 for Crossfire, so I need to know if that will work/if I have enough room. Also thinking about possibly adding an SSD in the future.

So what do you think? Will this work?
