Additional Comments: I am a one card user so I do not plan on SLI/Crossfire any time soon. I would appreciate some help in selecting a motherboard for my setup, The one I have listed below I simply choose with my limited knowledge and because it seemed most used with setups like mine.
^ Some of the CM PSUs are very good and it is one of those,... But as you will be overclocking both the CPU and GPU, IMO it would be better to stick with the Corsair 650TX as it would have little more headroom,... Or this XFX 650W - It is as good as the Corsair or even better and is modular would cost lower after rebates,... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CASE: COOLER MASTER HAF 922
(I am sure the 912 is enough but I love the look of this case)

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD3

I seem to have put my budget to high for my own taste
I will probably put the rest of the budget towards improving my external equipment (mouse, keyboard) as the above build looks pretty solid to me.
