  1. First, you'll get a Midi Tower instead of the costy Full-Atx Case. Antec One Hundred is an awesome one!

    Secondly, you don't need so powerful PSU even if you go for dual-gpu setup in the future. There's a very good deal at Newegg with a PC Power and Cooling 80+ Bronze 650W PSU along with a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB

    PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II PPCMK2S650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

    bundled with:

    SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    As for motherboard. I will choose a better motherboard with the latest Z68 chipset with the Smart SSD future. It has 8x / 8x SLI so you can add another 560Ti later and get perfomance close to one 580 (or even better).

    GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3P-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    Another Combo for CPU and GPU. Evga Superclocked 560ti beats Radeon HD6870 and It Is also has great SLI Scaling and it's pre-overclocked for better perfomance out of the box!

    Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K

    bundled with:

    EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1563-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

    8GB of Corsair Vengeance Ram with X.M.P Profile, so it can work at 1600MHz with zero effort.

    CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9

    Sum is 929$, with MIR 879$
