Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

That can works without problems, but that PSU isn't modular, is expensive and isn't very good compared with other at same price.

This: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is much better than that Silverston, modular and less price, can handle that rig without problems.

Another option is this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Any good PSU from 750W or above can handle that rig.

If you change RAM then it should work. i7 2600k doesn't support 1600MHz memory only 1333 and 1066 DDR3.
If you are a gamer (probably you are) then choose more GB of HDD about 750...

Don't change your RAM, that's the worst way that you can go...

soadnick i dunno where you got yer info but the 2600k can use any memory speed that the motherboard supports. yes the cpu officaly supports ddr3 1066/1333 but that doesnt limit the speed of the ram on the motherboard. if your gonna limit yourself to the slower speed ram then make sure it has similar latencies to the cpu's mmu to get the best from it...
you can bang in 2200 ram and it will work quite happily.... if his motherboard supports ddr3 1600 then he will have no issues. (you have to check this mind. some boards will support 1066/1333/1600+ oc/2100+oc
if you notice there is no support for 1800 on this imaginary board and if you tryed using it. its likley that you would have issues and be forced to run the ram at the slower 1600... which isnt entirely a bad thing as you can then drop the latency and make the ram more efficent. to the point that it will run slightly more efficiently than if you ran the ram at its original speed).
