Hey :) 
in the process of sorting a new PC setup. mainly for gaming.
im curious to know if all the parts ive chosen are able to work with each other AND to know if the power supply is enough.

CPU – Intel i7 2600k
Graphics Card – Asus GTX570
Motherboard – Asus P8Z68 V-Pro
Ram – Corsair Vengeance – 16GB KIT ( 4GBx4 ) DDR3-1600
Cooler – Coolermaster V6GT
PSU – TX650w

Kind Regards , Brad

650W is plenty, you'd only want an 850 if you were to SLI.

First off, I was corrected on this my first time posting, try to use this format, easier to follow and more likely to get answers: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

Also, I would suggest a higher wattage PSU, especially if you plan to OC at some point and add a second GTX570, that'll be drawing a fair amount of power.

I have a i5-2500k and a GTX560 Ti that I plan to SLI and I initially went for the TX750 v2, but was able to get the TX850 for $10 more, so I have a huge power ceiling now to add basically anything I want down the road.

8GB is plenty as boeing114 stated. Just make sure it is 1.5v and the lowest latency that fits within your budget.
GSKILL DDR3-1600 8GB (2x4GB) CL8 ($70) => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

650w is plenty for a single GTX 570 and probably enough for dual cards. If you plan on running SLI down the road a 750w unit would be good.
XFX Core Edition 750w ($85 after MIR) => http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The 2600k is overkill for gaming as you won't be taking advantage of hyperthreading. The 2500k is a great gaming CPU and will save you some money.

The Coolermaster V6GT is fine and all, but won't do much better than the $28 Hyper 212+.

Couldn't have said the rest better myself.
Also, try running your setup through this

I ran a guess at your setup and was hitting just over 650 watts, so as sadams04 said, if you want to future proof it more, go a little higher on wattage.

Thanks for all the feed back! :) 

was extremely helpful. will go for the 850w version of the TX, as i do plan on running SLI.
