Already have Accessories (Monitor/Keyboard/etc), Storage (SSD/HDD) and RAM. Missing anything? Anything a dumb choice or incompatible? Which brand of 560ti was kind of not well thought out, in particular.

Antec Twelve Hundred V3

PNY VCGGTX560TXPB-OC2-S GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB

Antec CP-850 850W

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3

Intel Core i5-2500K

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

One question: Why do you need a full tower case, are you planning on doing sli or watercooling in the future? (more like two questions) And you don't need a 850w psu for that set up.

I do plan on SLI (probably next month), and I mainly selected the PSU because it got rave reviews on Johnny Guru.

You could put a couple of 560ti's in a decent $99 mid tower case. I recommend Corsair Carbide Series 400R, Lancool PC-K62, or the CM 690 II advanced. ( choosing the case it's a matter of personal preference) but you could save up some money and buy a better card or for the future sli configuration. The corsair tx 750W v2 could be a great option too (that antec psu it's larger than standard psu's and you could have trouble mounting it in your case)
