Hi all, would you please take a look at these specs and tell me if I screwed anything up? Or if you recommend I do something differently, go ahead and say!

MSI P67A-GD55 (B3)

Intel Core i5 2500k

Patriot Gamer 2 Series (2 x 4GB) 240 pin DDR3 SDRAM 1333

Recertified EVGA GTX 480 1536 MB 384bit

KingWin ABT-730MM ATX12V 730W PSU

Seagate Barracuda 1TB and 160GB (boot drive) both 7200 RPM

Antec Three Hundred Illusion ATX case

ASUS 24X Dvd drive+burner

If anyone actually helps me, you'll have my utmost gratitude. This list contains absolutely nothing that I had originally picked out.

The power supply is not the best... I am honestly not the best with picking out of PSU *in terms of how much power you need* but I don't trust that brand..

Also.. is a better HDD *best 1tb for the buck*

I don't know why you would have the OS on a different drive and it not be a SSD... but w/e

Just in case I need to reinstall or anything, I don't really want to invest in a solid state drive.

Thanks for those links. Some of the stuff I didn't like (mobo had a couple features subtracted, etc.), but I will definitely end up buying the CPU/RAM combo and the PSU you recommended.
