    posting links to the items you are considering would also be helpful.

    the PSU you picked is terrible.
    these are all good budget PSU's

    make sure the GTX 460 isn't the SE version, it is much slower than a real 460.

    never heard of the ram maker "crossire" make sure it's DDR3 1333 or 1600 and is should be 2x2gb sticks, not a single stick.

    MSI NF750-G55 would not be my choices for a motherboard. I would choose an AMD chipset rather than a nVidia chipset. I would also go with intel for SLI or get a newer AMD 990X MB (see below)

    this MB is SLI and Bulldozer ready for $40 more
