Will these Computer components work well with each other?

Hello, I'm building a gaming computer, I really wanted to build a high end gaming computer, and budget is not a problem with me.

After several days of researching, I found out all the components, but I'm not sure if they will work together or if they will.

Please Help D:

Case: Antec Lanboy Air (Blue)---6x internal 3.5" bays, 3x external 5.25" bats. amd 2x internal bottom mounted 2.5 SSDs

Motherboard: Asus P6T WS PRO LGA1366

CPU: Intel i7-990x

CPU Cooling device: Corsair H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU cooler

Hard Drive: Seagate Momentus XT--750GB

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 24GB (6x 4GB)

Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 590: no SLI

Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster S-fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion series with I/O

Optical Drive: Asus 24X DVD Burnur

Fans Antec 77095 (Blue LED) 6x

Monitor: Dell UltraSharp U2711

Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid RS-850-SPHA-D3 850W Intel ATX 12V V2.3 * SSI EPS 12V2.92 SLI & CROSSFIRE ready.

Keyboard: Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth

Headsets: Creative Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset MKII

Power Surge Protector: Belking BE11-10---10ft 12 outlets


I was really wondering if the Power Supply with support all this (850W) and if the motherboard with support the RAM and all the other stuff.

If anyone has better ideas for the components inside, please feel free to share your ideas.

And one last question, do I need thermal grease for CPU water cooling, or is the thermal grease just for Heat Sinks?

    That's a super workstation but for gaming, Id be building Sandy Bridge ...

    The UltraSharp is a great IPS panel....dream of anyone into photo editing .... while it can double as a gaming monitor, a dedicated gaming machine gets no real benefit and small detriment from an IPS panel.

    The GTX 590 is not a great performer. You can get the same performance at half the price. Two 560 Ti's (900Mhz) for $430 get 862 fps in Guru3D game test suite....the 590 gets just 19 more at 881 .... Two 580's get 953....three 580's get 1030 (all at 1920 x 1200)

    Is The sandy-bridge better for gaming? I am a dedicated gamer, so I just want the best for gaming. I am not a photo-shop guy. As for the case, what makes this case better for gaming? I thought cooling would be best. I saw that this case is one of the top cases for gaming, but I don't see why. And I will not be doing an SLI with the video cards, what would be a good performing single video card?
    Thanks for the help!
  5. Also, I am not looking for a blu-ray player, I rather have a separate blu-ray player for my TV. And for the RAM, is there a RAM with higher GB that will work with the motherboard?
