You were doing OK until you got to the Raidmax PSU.

First though, get a 6870. Same performance, lower temps, lower power consumption.

As to the PSU:
Seasonic S12II
There is no question, this is the best you'll find for this price, and more than enough power for your system

this is the update with the new psu and video card

596.79+ 185 for cpu(tax)= 781.79- 20 mr 761.79 (still kinda expensive)

ohh and anyone know a decent screen.(1080p i guess)
