You don't need an SSD, but they are soooooooo nice! I love mine, and would spend way too much money all over again.

Corsair recently came out with updated TX power supplies. The new 750w model costs $10 more. It also got a 9.5 rating from jonnyGuru, as opposed to a 9 for the older versions, so it might be worth it. Either one will give you what you need. See what your local source has to offer.

2 GTX 560Ti cards in SLI ought to beat a single GTX 580. It is worth $20 to get them. If you bought 2 GB cards like this, they would probably destroy a 580, but do not know your budget, and the 1 GB models will most likely outpace your monitors anyway.

Not sure which flavor of G. Skill RAM to which you are referring, but here is some Patriot 1600 that is cheaper after rebate.

Last item here - the Samsung Spinpoint F3 is on sale at Newegg for $55. Not sure where you got the $75 quote.

Actually, if you got the cheaper RAM, and the less expensive hard drive, that would make of the $40 difference in the video cards :wahoo:

The motherboard is feature rich, solid components and a bit pricey. You won't get fantastic overclocks, if that is what you are looking for, but other than that, there is nothing negative to say about this board.

Hmmm! i see the problem is Amazon only have Asus boards for the time being :/ ...And i want to order the parts today :)  .

Order away. It is a good board, and youa re going to have an awesome machine. You can still overclock it just fine - in fact it has the EFI bios which makes it easier.
