HAF 932
Sapphire 6950 2GB w/ dual BIOS switch x2
SS-850HT 80+ Silver Cert
G Skill Ripjaws DDR3 1600
Card Reader
Blu Ray Burner
WiFi Card
Artic Silver Thermal Compound
Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler
i5 2500k + Gigabyte Z68 combo
Samsung 470 Series 128GB SATA II SSD

1. Will everything work together? Mainly I am worried that I am too ignorant about power supplies and may need something different. I have no idea what rails are, nor what I would need.

2. Which item is my bottleneck, if any?

3. Do I need faster RAM?

4. Will I need any additional tools to put this together? I put a computer together with help, 3 years ago. I know to use an anti static strap when installing the CPU. That is about the extent of my "advanced knowledge".

5. Any case accessory recommendations?

Thanks much.

1- Yeah, the PSU is Seasonic (a very good manufacturer) and you won't have problems.
2- Your wallet :) 
3- Those looks good, but if you can go with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
4- Anti static strap, patience and some screw drivers for install the cooler and PSU
5- Not now, if you have too much noise a fan controller in future is a good option

I forgot to mention I will be using two(updated now) of those video cards. Is my setup still sufficient? PSU, case, MB?

Also the MB is out of stock(or so they say for the combo deal). Could you suggest a reliable replacement with a usb 3.0 header?

Thank you for your quick, helpful reply.

Also, why do you suggest that RAM? Stat wise, they look identical. The G Skill RAM I have has more positive(5 egg) reviews.

Thanks

Myself, I'm using the ripjaws in two systems - 16 gigs (4 x 4) in I5-750 and 8 gigs (4 x 2) in I5-2500k Love them, only diff are mine are DDR3-1600 CL7 @ 1.60 Volts. No real advantage going from CL9 -> CL7. All 8 Kits played well with each other.

Components and specs, those Vengeance can do 8-8-8-24-1T at 1.65V without problems, even, 7-7-7-21.
