I'm building a new computer, these are the parts I have been looking at.

REVISED LIST

SeaSonic X750 Gold 750W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

G.SKILL PI 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL6D-4GBPI

ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution LGA 1155 Intel P67 / NVIDIA NF200 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
or
GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD4 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-2500K

ASUS ENGTX560 TI

I own two 1TB and one 2TB spinpoints, the 2TB is full of data. What do you think I should install my OS on?

I was thinking of waiting for an ssd for Win7 x64, put the two 1TB drives in raid 0 for programs and buy another 2TB drive to back up my current one.

Do you think 'll have compatibility issues between the ram and MB?

Here's the link to the memory/device list supplied by asus.

Why aren't you getting memory modules that adhere to Intel's 1.5 Volt specification for Sandy Bridge processors?

your wasting cash on that psu, ram, mobo. should also notee p67 needs a gpu, and thats a blu-ray drive not a burner.

and as previously stated Sandy Bride ram works better with lower voltages.

So what video card are you going to use??

Why spend more on a mobo than cpu?? Why not get a more sensible motherboard (under $200) and use the savings to get a MUCH better cpu (2600K)?

Will 1.5v ram give me significantly better stability than 1.6v ram? What difference will I notice between the cas6 ram that I posted and the cas 9 that you posted?

I cut out the blu ray drive and switched the psu


I was looking at the WS revolution over a ~$190 Asus or Gigabyte board because it came with an extra lan slot, had 16 phase cpu power, and could run pcie cards in x16, x16, x8, x8, rather than just x8, x8 on cheaper boards. The heat sinks also look cool. haha
Maybe this MB instead?

My case has exactly 10.2 inches for the gpu and about a centimeter above the gpu of space. I'll likely sli the gtx 560s either now or in the new future, how much height does the sli bridge add?

I see about the revolution 16x/16x, but in reality at normal resolutions the difference between 8x/8x and 16x/16x is 1-2% at most. (according to TH testing article)
