Hi, im Rob, im brand new to the forum. Recently i have been trying to peice together a multipurpose pc for around $1000. I think ive found a good setup and i would like to know what you guys think of it and if the parts i chose are even compatible with each other!

COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

ASUS ENGTX560 DCII OC/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro RSA00-AMBAJ3-US 1000W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML16GX3M4A1600C9B

ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.1) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM

Crucial M4 CT064M4SSD2CCA 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) with Transfer Kit

This is my first build and im really excited but incredibly nervous!

I also have a Sidewinder x4 and disc drive that i will be receiving as a Christmas present!

Also i left out a hard drive because i am purchasing that later.

Please let me know your thoughts! Are these even compatible? Should i swap out something for something else? Cheaper but equal options?

I will need a wireless adapter also if you have any suggestions?
Is this a good adapter? TRENDnet TEW-623PI 32-Bit PCI Rev. 2.1/2.2/2.3 Wireless N Adapter

Will i need a CPU cooler?

Im looking to purchase tonight or tomorrow to take advantage of the sales!

Thank You!

Just on the initial look-over ... 1000W is WAY overkill for that setup. Even if you were crossfiring two of that graphics card (sorry, SLI) that would be more than you need. You can probably get away with about 750W if you were crossfiring, 500-600W if not. I'd say a PSU ought to more than take care of your needs and any you may have in the future:

actually, that PSU a hell of a deal. I might pick up a couple myself.
