Components u selected r pretty much wat every one would have suggested, so gud job in that. if u r planning on adding another GPU then u have to get a 800-850w PSU. Lastly get urself a nice big quality mouse pad, makes hell lot of difference.

Thanks for the reply. Upgraded PSU and decided on Asus VW246H for monitor. That should be about it. Would you guys recommend any additional fans for cooling?
