8gb of ram is too much for gaming, 4gb is plenty for gaming. You didn;t tell us uses so i'm not sure what you are using it for but yeh. Don't need HDD or case?

Drop the Chip to the AMD 955 BE for $20 cheaper then simply change the multiplier to 17x giving you a 965 equivalent chip.

Only get 2x2GB of RAM. 8 GB is overkill.

The 580 GTX is a powerful card. If you don't plan to get another in SLI, get an 870 ATX Motherboard from Gigabyte or ASUS.

I'd get the XFX 850 80 PLUS SILVER PSU. It's modular and actually of equal/higher quality than the Corsair you listed.
