  1. I wonder if the PSU is too much for me? Maybe 650W would do?

    Yes it would, but if you want to SLI/Xfire in the future, keep this PSU.

    650W is enough for one HD5970, but I can see that your mobo is quad-XFire-able, 650W is not enough for 2 or more HD5970s.
  4. 850W it is then, anything else I need to change? Maybe some cheaper but just as good mobos or something.

    I want this rig to last quite a while though.

    SSD worth it? To have your OS on?
  5. SSD? Yup! It worth the price.
    Crucial C300 or OCZ Vertex 2 is good.
  6. Alright, so I'm thinking of changing the MOBO to a GA-X58A and maybe run GTX 470 x2?

    I guess 470 x2 is better than 5970 in performance (correct me if I'm wrong) but is 5970 better in the long run if you ever want to add another one and run double 5970?

    Another question, is H50 good enough or do I need to buy another CPU cooler? I got one laying around at home so why not. :)
