I am building a gaming/work station PC.

I already have the hard drive, case, and combo drive but I will include it anyway. Please review my build and offer any suggestions.

Current Build

Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
Motherboard: Asus P8P67 Deluxe
CPU: Intel i7 2600K
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)
CPU Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus
GPU: SAPPHIRE 100312-2SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB

This will be my first build I have made myself. THe main things I am concerned with are the GPU and RAM. From what I have heard Sapphire is a good brand but I haven't had any first hand experience. I have only heard good things about Corsair so I am assuming the ram is good.

For the PSU I am debating between this one and this one

I just edited my post with the power supplies I am considering but I am open to other suggestions as well.

you only need that big of powersupply if crossfire two 6950. a 650 watt power supply should do plenty

I will be doing crossfire in the future so I just want to get it to be safe.

How is the RAM?
Does everything else in the build seem good?
The CPU cooler will be good enough to cool a 4.5Ghz OC right?

Best solution

Check the Asus or Cooler Master forums to make sure that 212+ can clear those heat sinks on that RAM. but ya, that h/s will do fine for that o/c. Also that build with two of those cards might top out at 525w tops...and thats figuring in o/c on the cards and the cpu. 750w is way more than enough. Otherwise that build looks solid.
